Giving Tuesday

Amidst a year of many changes and unexpected challenges, we're pleased to share that Giving Tuesday 2020 remains an important global event and will be held on December 1st!  Although members of the Advancement Team will not be able to see you in person in the Forum like in years past, we're moving Giving Tuesday into the virtual space.

This year's featured fundraising projects are those that will assist students who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and who are struggling financially:
 
Augustana Health Crisis Student Support Bursary (newly established in response to the pandemic)
Awarded to students with satisfactory academic standing enrolled in any year of an undergraduate degree at Augustana Faculty. Selection based on demonstrated financial need due to loss or unforeseeable costs relating to a local, provincial, national or global health crisis. This funding is intended to provide additional financial support in conjunction with other established bursary programs at the University of Alberta.  
 
The Augustana Food Bank

Newly established and expanding upon the Campus Reciprocity Shelf, the Augustana Food Bank is a partnership of the Augustana Students' Union, ASSET Program, and Chaplaincy. Your gifts of cash will be used to purchase items for the food bank, and you're also welcome to donate non-perishable food items! Details are to come regarding where food donations can be delivered.
