Pick your projects on Feb. 24, Auburn's Tiger Giving Day
On Feb. 24, Auburn University will celebrate its sixth annual day of giving, known as Tiger Giving Day. For 24 hours at TigerGiving.org, members of the Auburn Family can pick unique, campus-wide projects they would like to support and see real-time updates reflecting the collective impact of their giving. Each project featured on the site needs help reaching its single-day funding goal.
The more than 30 projects will include installing life-size chimes on the grounds of the Gogue Performing Arts Center; creating a new, continuous flight aviary for the Southeastern Raptor Center; designing a 3-D model of Bloody Sunday to preserve the history of the Civil Rights Movement; exhibiting art education to the community via a mobile museum; providing care packages for residents in assisted living facilities; and enabling access to services for children with autism, among others.
Returning projects that have become donor favorites include the Wheelchair Basketball team, the Gene Machine and Canine Performance Sciences. Since 2015, Tiger Giving Day donors have fully funded more than 150 projects for the university, positively benefitting its students, faculty and nearby communities.
The website is TigerGiving.org and the official hashtag for the event is #TigerGivingDay.
