Thanksgiving is the day for giving thanks. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the days for getting great shopping deals. And Giving Tuesday is the day for giving back.

Since kicking off in 2012, Giving Tuesday has become the premier day for celebrating philanthropy and giving back across the country.

web GIVING TUESDAY my_utThe University of Toledo is asking alumni and supporters to consider a gift to UT on Tuesday, Dec. 1, if they should choose to participate by visiting utoledo.edu/giveTOL.

As part of its Giving Tuesday campaign, UT is highlighting just a few of the people and programs impacted by the generosity of Rocket donors, many of whom are giving forward for current and future students.

“Before I was a physician, I was a UT medical student working long hours, studying hard, and planning for a future in medicine. Scholarships eased the burden. When I came to Toledo, I wasn’t sure how long I’d stay. Seven years later, I’m a physician at UT Medical Center, and I’m proud to call Toledo home. I started giving back to UT as a way to honor the people who gave me this opportunity — and to extend the same opportunity to others,” said Dr. Rajiv Bahl, a resident in emergency medicine.

Join UT alumni and friends in remembering the University on Giving Tuesday. Gifts on Dec. 1 will make an impact on the University and beyond.
