On Dec. 3, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students and friends of UNCW are invited to show their Seahawk support on a day of global giving. #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Since its inception in 2012, the global movement has inspired millions to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.

Every dollar donated goes toward providing opportunities and making differences in the lives of students. To be involved in this day of significance, visit Social media users can tag posts #GivingTuesday.
