Giving Tuesday, held annually the week after Thanksgiving, is November 27. For the fourth year, the Office of Annual Giving is sponsoring its popular “Hugs and Kisses from Home” program for this international day of philanthropy.
When a parent or guardian of a current student makes a gift to the Fund for Mary Washington for Giving Tuesday, the Office of Annual Giving will deliver “Hugs & Kisses from Home” to him or her. The goody bag of Hershey’s Hugs & Kisses will be accompanied by a note from you and will be delivered to your student’s campus mailbox just before exam week.
Here’s how to participate:
- On Monday, November 26 or Tuesday, November 27, 2018, make a gift to the Fund for Mary Washington by clicking on “Hugs and Kisses from Home” at fund.umw.edu/g/givingtuesday.
- Include your student’s name and an encouraging end-of-semester note in the giving form’s comments field.
- The Office of Annual Giving will deliver your note, with a goody bag of Hershey’s Hugs & Kisses, to your student’s campus mailbox at the end of the last week of classes in December.
