With the launch of its 2018 Giving Tuesday campaign on Nov. 1, Kent State University has again transformed what was just a one-day fundraising initiative into a monthlong giving campaign to support student scholarships, expanded programs, study away initiatives and 21st-century facilities.
The 2018 Giving Tuesday campaign is a monthlong event, providing an expanded timeframe for giving, additional giving options and more occasions to have gifts matched.
