#Giving Blueday: The national movement to kick off the giving season

Date & time

Dec 2-3, 2014, 12:00 am EST


Online via social media and online giving

Giving Blueday is the first-ever university-wide day of giving. It coincides with Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving on the Tuesday immediately following the Thanksgiving weekend. It's a day for everyone who loves the Ford School to join together to support students, transform lives, shape the world, and make great things happen.

Giving Blueday falls on December 2, 2014. From midnight through 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, you can make a donation to the fund of your choice, or double your gift by choosing one of the matching gift opportunities listed below.

By choosing to support the Ford School on Giving Blueday, you'll join other members of the Ford School family from around the world—alumni, students, faculty, staff, parents, and friends—to create an enormous impact.

You can also visit givingblueday.org for social media challenges, special events, and real-time updates on December 2.

It’s a great day to be a Fordie!
