A generous donor has pledged to give the following amounts based on how many BYU alumni and friends donate on Giving Cougsday:
- 500 donors = $5,000
- 750 donors = $10,000
- 1000 donors = $20,000
Inspiring Learning, Making an Impact
Last year, BYU used Giving Cougsday funds for scholarships and mentored-learning experiences along with contributions to colleges, departments, and other BYU initiatives.
Last year’s donations likely funded over 40 students. Here are some estimates:
- 10 internships
- 6 study-abroad experiences
- 6 student-led research projects
- 16 half-tuition scholarships
- 8 full-tuition scholarships
What is Giving Cougsday?
In 2012, a BYU alum helped pioneer Giving Tuesday, promoting generosity everywhere. Last year, we brought the celebration home with a bit of True Blue pride through GivingCougsday. This year we hope to top last year’s total, so please tell your friends—especially those who love BYU!
President Kevin J Worthen told faculty and staff, “I hope we inspire our students to learn. And I hope that learning leads to inspiration. When both things happen, inspiring learning occurs, and we can then know we are on the right track to achieve the core goals set forth in our mission statement.”Donate to Inspiring Learning
