We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, gifts to Vanguard University will support the Through These Doors campaign for the Scott Academic Center renovation and expansion. Thanks to a generous donor, all donations will be matched dollar for dollar so that your giving will have twice the impact. And gifts of $100 or more will be recognized on a special donor wall display inside the new academic center. This is an opportunity for you to leave your mark in a tangible way at Vanguard.
About the Through These Doors campaign…
The Scott Academic Center is the hub of student services including admissions, financial aid, accounting, and the registrar offices. Gifts of any amount will help us reach the finish line of our $7,000,000 goal—we are less than $170,000 away! Gifts will go to support:
How can you help?
On December 2, we invite the Vanguard community (current students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends) to make a gift of any size to the Through These Doors campaign in conjunction with #GivingTuesday. Gifts of $100 or more will be included on a special “donor wall” in the building. But no matter the size of the gift, the goal is to get alumni to participate and give back to their alma mater. Visit vanguard.edu/givingtuesday.
Be a #GivingTuesday “Champion”:
- Making a donation of any amount
- Taking an “unselfie” picture of yourself with a sign that says “I support Vanguard because_________________” and post to your Facebook/Instagram/Twitter with the hashtag #GivingTuesday #@VanguardU
- Nominating someone else in the Vanguard community to make a gift as well. Let them know they have until 12 midnight on December 2.
When do we need your participation?
We’d love to snap a picture of you prior to December 2 so we already have a strong social media presence when the day begins. Please send us a photo of you (or if you’re local, we can come snap one!) that we can post on December 2? Then post it on your own accounts and tag as many people as you can think of on the actual day! Here is an example:

Vanguard President Dr. Carol Taylor has been known to say, “don’t grow weary in the well doing.” Well, Orange County is taking notice of your excellence too! Congrats on being nominated for the 2011 OC Business Journal: Women in Business Awards!
