UCCS’ Alumni Relations and Annual Giving department has announced that the campus community will again decide — via social media voting that runs Sept. 16-23 — the gift for the 2021 Giving Tuesday campaign “Give Today. Change Tomorrow.”
This year’s gift is the third of a four-year collectible set of coasters featuring custom artwork of the campus and Colorado Springs. The 2021 coaster options include a collection of educational icons, Garden of the Gods or a topographical map of the campus area.
Voting takes place on the main UCCS and alumni social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter from Sept. 16 through September 23. The winning design will be used for the coasters and announced in early November.
The gift will be sent to all Giving Tuesday donors who make at least a $60 one-time donation or a $5 monthly recurring gift.
Donors have provided more than $544,500 for student scholarships and other vital programs in the last six years of the Giving Tuesday campaign. This year’s annual day of giving takes place on November 30, 2021 and will feature 18 stories about UCCS students and programs.
