SAN ANGELO, Texas — Angelo State University is participating in the eighth annual charitable fundraising movement Tuesday, Dec. 3. All money raised will go toward ASU’s Ram Family Student Scholarship.

"Giving Tuesday" is a 24-hour global day of giving campaign that takes place on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving annually. It is fueled by the power of social media.

This is the third year for ASU to participate in Giving Tuesday. The goal is to reach 300 donations to the Ram Family Student Scholarship, that is otherwise funded primarily by ASU students.

Additionally, the ASU Foundation will match the first $5,000 in total donations.

Donations can be made to the Ram Family Student Scholarship Dec. 3, either online, or in person at the ASU Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.

More details on the campaign and ways to give are available at angelo.edu/givingtuesday.

The Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony will begin at 5 p.m. Dec. 3 near the ASU Memorial Oak Grove in front of the Mayer Administration Building, 2601 W. Avenue N.
