Behind the Scenes of
Giving Tuesday With Psi Chi
Since Psi Chi launched its inaugural Give Back to Psi Chi annual giving campaign earlier this fall, things have been really busy here at the Central Office; even busier than usual. One of the reasons we’re so busy is Giving Tuesday. The concept is, after the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday there comes Giving Tuesday. A day set aside to give back: to help the nonprofit of your choosing with a gift during the holiday season.
Each year Giving Tuesday has been in existence, just 6 short years, gifts have risen sharply. In 2015 alone some $177 million dollars were donated on Giving Tuesday!* Just imagine if everyone who reads this blog would donate $28? Think of what that could mean for Psi Chi’s member programs!
Psi Chi’s Central Office has put in a great deal of work into its first Giving Tuesday. You’ll see evidence of that on psichi.org, our store, our publications, and even in Chattanooga, Tennessee’s local paper (home of Psi Chi’s Central Office) that Giving Tuesday is a day we have embraced wholeheartedly.
When you Give Back to Psi Chi, it’s not just giving back…it’s giving forward. What better time than during the holiday season to give a gift that will help build the future of psychology? That’s what you’re doing when you make your financial contribution to the Give Back to Psi Chi campaign, you know? You are making an impact.
The goal of Give Back to Psi Chi is to raise $88,000. Already, gifts total 24% toward this goal! And with your help on Giving Tuesday, we will surpass it!
Dr. Nadine Kaslow was the President of her Psi Chi chapter as an undergraduate. In 2014 she was the President of APA. Now, she is the Give Back to Psi Chi 2017–18 Chair. Watch her testimonial video to see why you too should Give Back to Psi Chi.
