The excitement this week was contagious as we launched Giving Tuesday with a special call to action from some very proud and generous Waterloo champions on social media.
More than 350* people made gifts on Tuesday, and we’re excited to share that your participation launched us way past last year’s total to just over $140,000* — the most we’ve ever raised on Giving Tuesday! Thank you!
A huge thank you is due to our Waterloo champions for matching donations during their special hours. They are: Cindy Forbes (BMath ’79), Steven Woods (PhD ’96), Paul Salvini (BMath ’92), Jay Shah (BASc ’11), and Dan Langlois (MAcc '92). You’re awesome!
The Giving Tuesday movement is taking root around the world, in our communities, and, thanks to your thoughtful generosity, right here on our campus. You have helped achieve something powerful that you can be proud of and the world can be thankful for.
*Final accounting still in progress — numbers subject to change.
