The Library celebrates Giving Tuesday — donations are matched!

Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Today is Giving Tuesday, a day to celebrate the impact of charitable giving and to harness the generosity of people around the world to bring about change in their communities.

The Library is proud to be a part of the celebration and is thrilled to announce that one of our generous library donors, a grad from 1987, has offered to match all gifts to the University of Waterloo Library Fund up to $4,000! This diverse fund supports programs to equip our students with key information navigation and assessment skills while providing a place for community and learning. The Library has shifted most activities online and is providing student programming, reference support, and community building space in a digital environment.

When asked about why they decided to match gifts to the Library this Giving Tuesday, our generous donor said, "I know the value of a university education, and I know the valuable role libraries play in equipping people with the information skills required to succeed in our increasingly knowledge-based economy. I chose to become a matching donor to the Library this Giving Tuesday to demonstrate my support and encourage others to become donors. We need a diverse base of funding to ensure a university education is accessible to all and private support is a very important component of that."

Join in the Giving Tuesday celebration! Please join the Library's matching campaign and support the University of Waterloo Library Fund today! Visit the Giving Tuesday web page to make your gift online.
