Giving Tuesday a success at Lakehead
On Nov. 29, Lakehead University initiated its first-ever Giving Tuesday event, which officially kicks-off the giving season.
The University's Social Media Champions did a tremendous job all day long sharing the message and encouraging others to support Lakehead's students through an online or in-person gift. A huge debt of gratitude is owed to Lakehead's students, faculty, and staff. The university, alumni, and civic leaders were so generous and we are most grateful.
In total, $19,684 was donated online, in-person and over the phone in support of Lakehead's exceptional and unconventional students. These gifts were generously matched by the Alumni Association for a combined total, to date, of $39,684. Any gifts received by Dec. 6 will be included in the Giving Tuesday total.
