Fellow faculty and staff, our inaugural Wilkes Giving Day is just ONE week away!

The excitement is rising as our digital display boards across campus showcase Giving Day and donations listed on the Giving Day Leaderboard show which school/college/unit is in the lead for Challenge Funds!

We invite our entire campus community to come together to help raise excitement and awareness through volunteering or participating in some special activities leading up to and on Giving Day 2.20.2020!

How can you help now?
Become a Giving Day Social Ambassador:  Join the effort now at wilkes.edu/givingday. Participate in the #Give2Wilkes Photo Challenge, help turn social media blue and gold, and update your social profile pictures and headers with Giving Day shareable images found on the website.

How can you help on 2.20.2020?
Show Up at the Social Media Shout Out:  Come to the Henry Student Center concourse and lounge between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. to take your picture with the Giving Day photo frame. You may even want to try the Giving Day “It Takes Two” Tik Tok challenge! The Wilkes Hip Hop Dance Club will show you their Tik Tok moves from 11 a.m. to noon in the Henry Student Center.

Volunteer to Serve in the “Giving Day War Room:”  Stop by the Miller Room in the Henry Student Center to join the camaraderie. Enjoy some hot chocolate and a treat, and make calls or send texts or emails to your own network of Wilkes alumni or friends to ask for their support of Giving Day. The Alumni Office can also provide a list of potential alumni donors. You can have your photo taken while helping out for you to post on social media! Volunteer for any length of time, even just 30 minutes, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 3 to 8 p.m. 

Be a Colonel Spirit Volunteer at the Henry Student Center:  We can use your help to encourage students and fellow employees to stop and take their picture with the Giving Day photo frame or to try out their Tik Tok moves in the Giving Day Tik Tok Korner! All you need to do is commit to 30 minutes or more any time between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
