Give & Receive

GivingTuesday, the global day of philanthropy, is coming soon on Nov. 28! We’re celebrating GivingTuesday through #GGUGives all month long so that alumni, employees, staff, students, and friends have 21 days to help advance the University’s mission to provide quality, affordable, accessible education for all.

This November, join us for 21 days of giving through #GGUGives and Make It Possible for students to realize their dreams of higher education and successful futures. Every donation, large or small, makes a huge difference in our students’ lives. To show our appreciation for your generosity, we’ll randomly select one lucky donor to have lunch with President Fike! We’ll also award randomly selected contributors with GGU merchandise to keep you warm all winter: a Columbia Fleece Jacket, 84”x54” Sweatshirt Blanket, and a 16 oz. Bistro Mug.

Prizes for giving Tuesday.
