What is Giving Tuesday?

After Black Friday and Cyber Monday is a day to GIVE BACK. Giving Tuesday is a global day of philanthropy fueled by generosity and social media.
It is a movement to ensure that anyone can give back. Whether it is a gift of time, money, items or influence, Columbus State students will come together to GIVE BACK. 


Giving Stations will be located throughout campus:

  • Nestor Hall
  • Sips! Coffee (Davidson Hall)
  • Union Cafe (Cafeteria)
  • Bookstore (DX Building)
  • Moeller Hall (Delaware Campus)

There are no gifts too small and ALL gifts matter!

  • Donate ANY amount of money, items, a social media post or 5 minutes of time and you will receive a special "thank you gift" - find a different gift at each Giving Station while supplies last!

  • Every $2.00 = 1 Raffle Ticket for AMAZING Prizes like gift cards, free passes to local attractions and free food!

  • Every $5.00 = 2 Raffle Tickets + a $5.00 Bookstore Certificate (Only to the first 100 students!)

  • Donate in person or online. (Donate button will go live on Tuesday November 27th)


Items collected will support the Scholar Network, our student group for former foster youth. Items needed include:

  • Hats/Gloves
  • School Supplies
