This Giving Tuesday Season, Continue Kent State's Most Generous Annual Tradition

Join the proud Kent State tradition of giving back this Giving Tuesday season by supporting the KSU fund that means the most to you. Kent State’s most generous annual tradition runs Oct. 31 through Nov. 28, with special giving incentives throughout the month that make your impact go further. When we come together, we create a legacy of brilliance that helps our students shine and makes the world Forever Brighter.

Maximize Your Impact 

  • From Oct. 31 through Nov. 27, for every 25 unique donors who give $25 or more to a Giving Tuesday featured fund, that fund will earn a $500 participation boost.
  • This all culminates with the international day of giving on Nov. 28. On this special day, the Kent State University Foundation sets aside $100,000 to match donors – dollar-for-dollar – on gifts up to $1,000 made to any KSU Foundation fund (while matching funds last).

As in past years, members of Kent State’s Board of Trustees, Foundation Board, Alumni Board and President’s Cabinet have generously pledged their private support to encourage participation from the university community. Their gifts, which total nearly $40,000, will be used to fund the creative incentives that make Kent State’s Giving Tuesday campaign so impactful.

Kent State has gained national recognition for this innovative initiative and the ways in which the university community rallies together to support students when they need it the most. Flashes give back. It’s who we are. It’s what we do.

Join us as we build our legacy and help our students set the world alight. More information on all the Giving Tuesday featured funds can be found at
