Giving Blueday (GBD) took place November 27, 2018.
GBD is U-M’s annual day of giving and coincides with the global day of giving, Giving Tuesday. It’s a day for everyone who loves Michigan to join together to support students, transform lives, shape the world, and make great things happen.
During each hour of GBD, challenges will be posted throughout the U-M social media channels at the university, school, department, and organizational level. The 2018 challenges and matches provide fun ways to spread the word about your involvement at U-M and about donations made, including opportunities to have donations matched.
In the Department of Linguistics, donations will go toward the Linguistics Strategic Fund, which advances these important areas of student and faculty support:
Student scholarships, internships, and fellowships
Academic programs and activities
Innovative and transformative research experiences
Educational program enrichment
A gift to the Linguistics Strategic fund on November 27th will provide support to all of these critical areas!
