Once again, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary will participate in #GivingTuesday to encourage support for the seminary’s annual fund. In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday and online shoppers participate in Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday allows people to support their favorite causes by participating in a national movement dedicated to giving. This year’s 24-hour crowdfunding initiative will take place Tuesday, November 29.
Interest in and revenue received through the initiative is largely generated from social media outreach mechanisms. Throughout the month of November and on #GivingTuesday itself, #GivingTuesday-related posts will appear on Louisville Seminary’s Facebook
accounts. Those who keep up with seminary news via social media are encouraged to use @lptsnow, @GivingTues and the #GivingTuesday hashtag on social media to help generate interest in the campaign.
Following are several resources for Louisville Seminary #GivingTuesday ambassadors to share between now and November 29. Hyperlinks Tweets Facebook You don’t have to wait until November 29 to show your support.
