The University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma encourages everyone to get into the holiday spirit this year on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 29, which marks a time for people everywhere to give back to the causes that are important to them.

The donated funds will support a variety of programs at USAO, including student scholarships, Drover athletics and faculty development.

“Giving Tuesday is an annual movement that encourages a single day of philanthropy,” said JP Audas, vice president for advancement and executive director of the USAO Foundation. “We have always seen an incredible amount of support on this special day, and I am certain that the USAO family, their friends and others across our area will reach out and help us continue to share the gift of a college education that only this university can provide.”

Initiated in 2011 as the brainchild of the nonprofit Mary-Arrchie Theatre Company in Chicago, Giving Tuesday uses the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to encourage people to donate to various charities to make a transformative difference in their communities and the wider world.
