UChicago Partners with #GivingTuesday

On the heels of Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, there is a national movement to celebrate philanthropy: #GivingTuesday—this December 3.

To recognize the impact of philanthropy and our appreciation for an intriguing conversation, UChicago has partnered with #GivingTuesday and we want you to be a part of it.

As with all things, UChicagoans are participating in #GivingTuesday in their own way—by making their annual gift and by posting their answer to the uncommon question below:

Your great-uncle Eugene uses paper currency—tens, twenties, and larger denominations—as bookmarks. When he finishes Thorstein Veblen’s The Theory of the Leisure Class, he can't decide what to do with the fifty he kept tucked between its pages. How do you convince him to give it to UChicago?

Ready to go with your answer? Post it here.

Need some additional motivation? The first 100 alumni to post their answer to the great-uncle Eugene question will receive an "I <3 UChicago" T-shirt, designed by undergraduates Kaylee Steck and Tosca Lichtenheld.

Thank you to all of our supporters.
