Postsecondary institutions participate in Giving Tuesday initiatives

December 2, 2020
Several Canadian postsecondary institutions participated in Giving Tuesday initiatives to raise support for students experiencing food insecurity. In Nova Scotia, Mount Saint Vincent University, Dalhousie University, Saint Mary’s University, St Francis Xavier University, Acadia University, Cape Breton University, Atlantic School of Theology, NSCAD University, and the University of King’s College collaborated on a project inspired by the J & W Murphy Foundation. The foundation provided each institution a minimum donation and offered to match additional funds raised. Centennial College also launched a campaign to help students who face housing and food security issues. In addition to seeking donations for the Student Emergency Fund, Centennial encouraged the community to participate in the “Love Notes to Centennial Students” social media campaign.
