What is Giving Tuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.

At Finlandia, #GivingTuesday means giving back to students. All donations received this #GivingTuesday will go toward Finlandia’s annual scholarship programs to help make Finlandia affordable for current and future students. Currently, 100 percent off all domestic full-time students receive aid. Learn more about how to donate on #GivingTuesday below.
