What is Giving Tuesday?

You’ve heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but did you know about Giving Tuesday? It’s a global philanthropic effort and on Nov. 29 you can participate by helping to support students at UVic.


A donation to UVic’s Giving Tuesday campaign, no matter the size, will help create an extraordinary academic environment at UVic. Your participation is the most important part of this event.

How? Your donations go to making every student’s time at UVic extra special, the same way sprinkles do on a cupcake. Your support can help student initiatives, clubs, social events and more. Every small sprinkle works to give students the best education possible.

This year, we’re aiming to raise $5,000 from the campus and alumni community. Enough to support 10 grants to help groups like:

Get Involved

Our campus community can get involved on campus all day on November 29. There will be info tables around campus, and student volunteers offering whipped cream and sprinkles (by donation) for your hot drinks!

Alumni can be part of our first ever Giving Tuesday campaign by phone or email.
