#GiveGreenDay


Register November 27, 2018 12:00 am November 27, 2018 11:55 pm America/Chicago #GiveGreenDay

Spartans in Chicago and across the country will #GiveGreen this November! On November 27, 2018, Michigan State University and the Chicago Spartans are excited to promote #GiveGreenDay, MSU’s response to Giving Tuesday. On the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, people from around the country mobilize to support causes that are near and dear to their hearts. For MSU, #GiveGreenDay provides a wonderful opportunity to support local Illinois students who wish to attend Michigan State University, but may be unable to do so without the support of endowed scholarships. #GiveGreenDay was born out of Spartan generosity, with parents, friends and Spartan Alumni opening their hearts and wallets to give more students an opportunity to experience what it means to be a Spartans. We are asking our Chicago Spartans community to consider supporting two causes this year for #GiveGreenDay. The first is our endowed scholarship fund, which provides scholarship dollars to outstanding future Spartans from the great state of Illinois. The second is MSU Safe Place, the first domestic violence shelter and support program on a college campus in the United States. To maximize our efforts, your Chicago Spartans Board is excited to announce $1,000 donation pledge for #GiveGreenDay. In addition, we’ve also received an generous donor challenge grant. For every dollar we raise, an anonymous donor will match each gift 1:1 up to $1,000 (not including the funds committed by the Board).  What is Give Green Day? On the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, it is a tradition for people from all walks of life to give back to their communities. Known as “Giving Tuesday”, or more formally National Day of Giving, this day is a wonderful opportunity to donate to your favorite charity before the holiday gift season kicks into high gear. Give Green Day was born out of Spartan generosity. Across the country, Alumni open their hearts and wallets to give back to the University that means so much to them. Why give? We are proud to support a new generation of Spartans from Illinois who are excited to pursue their higher education at Michigan State University. We’re also proud to support a trailblazing program like MSU Safe Place. Our hope is to inspire you to reach into your heart and wallet to give back to MSU. No gift is too small (or too big). Our goal is to raise over $5,000 through these efforts. If you still need a reason, how about you give just to show the Detroit Spartans we aren’t intimidated by their antics?
