Montclair State was proud to participate in Giving Tuesday on November 28, 2017. Over 100 donors stepped forward and gave to the University, resulting in over $16,000 in support. Giving Tuesday is a day to celebrate generosity, and we are particularly grateful for your generous support each year.

For Montclair State, Giving Tuesday represents the chance to come together as a community of loyal supporters and give back to make an impact.

This global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration is observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. After the widely recognized shopping events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, Giving Tuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.

“We are happy that Giving Tuesday is proving to be a successful annual tradition at Montclair State,” says Stacy Albanese, Associate Director of Alumni Relations and Annual Giving. “Giving Tuesday is a great way to celebrate the generosity of our donors, and we are thrilled with the positive response we received yet again this year.”

The day, a 24-hour opportunity to give back, included outreach to alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and donors via email, phone, in-person visits and social media.

Thank you to those of you that were inspired to make gifts in support of our mission. Generous donors like you serve as a powerful reminder of the impact that the Montclair State community has when we come together to make a difference. If you didn’t get a chance to donate and would like to add to the impact of our generous supporters, you can make your gift online. You can also fulfill your open Giving Tuesday pledge online.
