What is T4G?
Thanks4Giving (T4G) Day is an online-based fundraising challenge that encourages alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends to come together and support Susquehanna University. With each gift to Susquehanna, donors have the opportunity to vote for one of three service initiatives that students donate hundreds of volunteer hours to each year.
How do the service initiatives receive their prize?
When a service project reaches 250 votes, it will receive a prize to help advance its work.
What’s in it for Susquehanna?
If all three projects reach 250 votes, Susquehanna will receive $200,000, in addition to the amount pledged by individuals on challenge day.
We only have 24 hours to reach our goals: 10 a.m. EST Nov. 21 to 10 a.m. EST Nov. 22.
Why Should I Participate?
Where do gifts go?
Gifts made during the T4G Challenge will support the Susquehanna University Fund (SUF). This unrestricted designation supports every student on campus and allows the university to address important needs.
Will 100 percent of my gift go to the SUF?
Is there a minimum donation amount?
Yes, there is a $5 minimum donation.
Can I make multiple gifts?
Yes. However, there is only one vote per person for the challenge.
Can a donor make a gift by mail or telephone?
Due to the short timeframe of Thanks4Giving Day, only gifts made by phone or online will count toward the challenge goals. You can make a gift by phone at 570-372-4635.
Can I make a gift of stocks in support of T4G Day?
You can always give a stock gift to support your school or program. However, due to the short timeframe of Thanks4Giving Day, stock gifts will not count toward the contest goals or matching funds.
Is it safe to make my gift online?
Yes. The information collected during the giving day is only used by Susquehanna University. It will not be sold to or shared with any third-party organizations.
Is my T4G contribution tax deductible?
Yes. Your gift is entirely tax deductible. You will receive an email confirmation that will serve as your receipt for tax purposes.
Can I create a recurring gift?
You can make a recurring gift by visiting the Susquehanna University website at www.susqu.edu/makeagift. Please note that only the payment processed during T4G Day will count for the challenge.
