#GivingTuesday initiative allows community to support SVSU students impacted financially by pandemic

Supporters of Saginaw Valley State University can help students cover unexpected financial burdens due to the COVID-19 pandemic through an online donation on Tuesday, May 5.

The SVSU Foundation-supported initiative -- known as #GivingTuesday -- allows community members on Tuesday, May 5 to donate at the following webpage: svsu.edu/givingtuesday

A letter from the SVSU Foundation office explained the benefits of the #GivingTuesday initiative:

"The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the lives of SVSU students. It has forced Cardinals across our campus to endure one challenge after another. But Cardinals are rising to those challenges. They are adjusting to the shift to online learning. They are creatively staying connected while maintaining physical distance. And many Cardinals are working on the front lines, filling essential roles so others can stay safe.

To help cover unexpected financial burdens due to the current health crisis, SVSU students need us now more than ever. That’s why we are inviting you to support SVSU for #GivingTuesdayNow on May 5!

Through your generosity, you can:

  • Support students working on the front lines during the COVID-19 situation through the Front Line Heroes Fund.
  • Provide much-needed scholarship support to students facing new financial challenges.
  • Enable SVSU to continue fulfilling its mission to transform lives through educational excellence.

#GivingTuesdayNow was created in response to the unprecedented need caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. I hope you will take part in this global day of giving with a tax-deductible gift of any amount. Your support will help provide financial relief to students when they most need it."
