Giving Tuesday

Saint Augustine’s University is joining Giving Tuesday this year and many in the community could not be more excited. Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media. This event will kick off the charity season. The celebration is on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

“I think it is very beneficial to HBCUs,” said Dandre Johnson, produced and directed the video. “It’s good to let people know the awareness.” Johnson added: “I have a good feeling about it this year especially because it’s the first.”

This event will help Saint Augustine’s students build a better future, help them study aboard and change the lives of their families. Also, it will help SAU to meet it goal of raising over $5,000 for the annual fund.

All checks should be made to Saint Augustine’s University and cash donations will be accepted as well. The first 250 donations of $50 or more will receive a special gift.
