Sonoma State University Participating in #GivingTuesday on Nov. 29

On November 29, Sonoma State University will again participate in #GivingTuesday, a global effort dedicated to donating to nonprofit organizations following the spending craze of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Sonoma State's theme this year is "Add to SSU'S Cart," and donors can share the message on social media with #Give2SSU.

Many CSU students depend on scholarships to supplement their student loans and side jobs. Donations make a substantial impact on our future leaders.

"Giving to SSU scholarships is important to me," says Molly Rattigan (BA Political Science '02). "It's a way of saying thank you for the experience I had and the opportunities that have come my way as a result of my education. I want other to have a similar experience and not stress about the cost of education."

There are three categories of giving for this year's campaign. The Provost's Undergraduate Research Grants help students purchase supplies need to complete research projects. The Heart of SSU Alumni Scholarship is a newer fund that provides one student a full year of tuition and school supplies. And WolfBucks for Books puts credit on students' accounts for textbooks and supplies from the Sonoma State bookstore.

"I believe it's important to give to SSU Scholarships," says Alumni Association President Joe Huang (BS Business '02, BA International Economics '04). "I leaned into my feelings of wanting to help others. You'd be amazed as to how your simple act may impact someone's life. That is why I give."
