Top 3 ways to make an impact on SAIT Giving Day
When it comes to making a difference in the success of SAIT students, every little bit has the potential to make a difference.
Giving Day is an opportunity for the SAIT community — students, alumni, donors and employees — to come together to create a future that is better, inclusive, innovative and full of community spirit for the next generation of students. The fifth annual Giving Day kicks off on Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2021, at 10 am and will include many different opportunities to show your support.
Below are the top three ways you can get involved with SAIT Giving Day and help bring on the future.
1. Spread the word
Be part of the spirit of philanthropy by telling others about Giving Day. Boost the message with the help of our social media toolkit. Or, share your story: tell us why giving is important to you or how someone else’s kindness and generosity has impacted your life.
#SAITGIVES = dollars on Oct. 5-6
Each time #SAITGIVES is posted on social media during the fundraising marathon, SAIT Alumni and Development employee Tania Brandstrom will donate an additional $2 toward student awards. The more #SAITGIVES is used, the more you will be helping to unlock key funds for student success.
(Instagram accounts must be public OR @SAITalumni must be tagged in the post to be tracked.)
2. Make a gift
Give online 💻
Make a gift in real-time, whether you choose to donate today or save your support for Giving Day. Visit sait.ca/givingday and click “give now” to support an area of importance to you.
Give by phone ☎️
If online donations aren’t your thing and you prefer to talk to someone about your options, call 403.210.4532.
Give by mail 💌
Donations can also be made by mail. You can send a one-time gift via cheque or money order payable to the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology or sign up for a monthly gift with your void cheque.
3. Engage in a challenge
Over 24 hours, our SAIT community will have the opportunity to help multiply student funds and enter for a chance to win a prize through different Giving Day challenges.
⭐ Pro Tip: Anyone can make an impact on the lives of SAIT students. Build your own community of philanthropy among your friends, family or coworkers by inspiring them with your own participation in a challenge or inviting them to join in.
