Day of Giving

One Day. One Purpose. One Lander.





Lander University is participating in Giving Tuesday with a 24-hour fundraising campaign. Gifts made to the University on the annual global day of giving — this year on Nov. 28 — can lead to a better future for our students, campus community and beyond.

Created in 2012, Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It puts a philanthropic spin on the retail rush of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Each year, Giving Tuesday highlights the power of people coming together to make a positive difference in our communities and the world.

We encourage our alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends to consider Lander when participating in Giving Tuesday this year. Together as #OneLander, we can fund scholarships for deserving students, support Bearcat athletic teams, and invest in initiatives that build a better future for our students, South Carolina, and our global community.

Here are four things you should know about Giving Tuesday at Lander:

  1. Giving Tuesday is on Tuesday, November 28, 2023.
    The campaign officially runs for 24 hours on November 28, but you can make a gift to Lander as early as today by visiting or clicking the buttons below.

  2. Every donor and every dollar count.
    Every gift matters. Whether it’s $20, $50 or $100, it makes a collective impact! We have a strong, passionate community of alumni and friends. How much could we accomplish if we all came together as #OneLander?

  3. Make an impact by donating to one of three areas:


    Gifts to the Excellence Fund make possible some of the university’s most pressing initiatives. This can include faculty research, student programs, campus learning spaces, emergency relief, and more. When you give a Greatest Needs gift, you can feel good knowing it’s accomplishing something powerful. Wherever the need is most urgent, your donation provides immediate support.

  4. All support for Lander matters—whether it’s a financial donation or gifts of your time or talent.
    Here are some other ways to show your support:

Most importantly, share your Lander story on your social media platforms and ours. Tell everyone what it means to be a member of the Lander family and why you love Lander. Together as #OneLander, we can help Lander University continue to thrive!
