Five ways to make an impact on SAIT Giving Day
SAIT’s third annual Giving Day, a 24-hour fundraising campaign in support of students, is coming up on Wednesday, Oct. 16 with more opportunities to give back and get involved. SAIT catalysts ― students, alumni, staff and donors ― from across our community are showing why giving time, talent and resources isn’t only beneficial for the recipient; the benefit can be great for the giver too.
Here are the top five ways you can make an impact this Giving Day:
1. Spread the word and support student families in need with #SAITGIVES
Be a catalyst
Be part of the movement of giving by telling others about Giving Day. Spread the word with the help of the Giving Day toolkit. Share your catalyst story: tell us why giving is important to you or how someone else’s kindness and generosity has impacted your life.
#SAITGIVES = dollars on October 16
On Giving Day, each time #SAITGIVES is used on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram $2 will be donated to SAITSA’s Adopt-A-Family program for students with families needing extra assistance during the holidays.
(Instagram accounts must be public OR @SAITalumni must be tagged in the post to be tracked.)
Whatever your ability, any amount will help improve the student experience through accessibly supports and funds. There are four different ways you can donate to the area of support you care about most:
Tap and go on Giving Day
If you are on campus, donate at the Giving Day booth in the Culburt Atrium, Johnson Cobbe Building to support SAITSA’s Adopt-A-Family program for students with families needing extra assistance during the holidays.
Top up your coffee or food bill at Chartwells
SAIT Giving Day sponsor Chartwells is making it easy to give during your coffee or lunch break on Giving Day. Add $1 or $2 to your bill at specific SAIT food service locations on campus .
Donate by phone
