NMSU’s annual Giving Tuesday event to benefit students, programs across New Mexico

The entire community is invited to celebrate Giving Tuesday this year at NMSU.

A special kickoff celebration is planned at 9 a.m., and a closing celebration will start at 5 p.m. Free parking will be available in designated areas between Corbett Center and Milton Hall.

Matching money has been a key component in previous years’ successes. This year, there are several fund-matching opportunities available. For example, the first $200,000 in gifts made online or in person will be eligible for a dollar-for-dollar match, up to $1,000 per household.

A total of $47,526 will be available to match donors who make contributions to the Aggie Innovation Fund, an interdisciplinary innovation center housed in the College of Engineering. All gifts to the Aggie Innovation Fund will receive a dollar-for-dollar match, on a first-come, first-served basis, with no household cap.

A total of $125,000 also will be available to match donors who make contributions to the Aggie Finish Line, a degree-completion scholarship. This fund supports students in their final year at NMSU. All gifts to the Aggie Finish Line will receive a dollar-for-dollar match, with no household cap.

Last year, the event brought in more than $2.1 million in donations to scholarship funds benefiting students across all five NMSU campuses in New Mexico.

Since 2015, NMSU has raised more than $13.1 million in contributions during Giving Tuesday, drawing more than 7,100 donors and creating more than 197 new scholarships over four years.
