What is Your UVic's Giving Tuesday: Project Add Sprinkles?

  • Your UVic Giving Tuesday: Project Add Sprinkles is a 24-hour virtual and on-campus event taking place on December 1st that unites the worldwide UVic community to benefit causes they care about.
  • We’re asking you to show what UVic means to you by donating or unlocking dollars (through participating in games and challenges) for the Giving Tuesday fund of your choice. This year, working with faculties and departments across campus, we have identified 20 Giving Tuesday Priority Funds that range from supporting health and wellness to COVID-19 research, and social justice to community outreach programs.
  • On Giving Tuesday, small actions (donating and participating) add up to make a big difference to our students, campus and community—like sprinkles on a cookie.
  • Anyone can take part through a variety of ways—through donating, playing the online games and engaging on social media—that will help us reach our fundraising and participation goals.
  • Last year, more than 3,375 people participated, raising more than $167,000 to enhance the student experience, support programs, and sprinkle impact across campus.
  • Visit uvic.ca/givingtuesday for details about where your donations will add sprinkles this year.
