TAG (Thank-A-Giver) Day to celebrate donor support at Binghamton University
BINGHAMTON, NY -- Binghamton University will host TAG (Thank-A-Giver) Day, a campus-wide event designed to engage and educate students, faculty and staff about the impact of giving back, on Wednesday, March 9, throughout campus.
Organized by the Binghamton University Student Philanthropy Committee and The Binghamton Fund, this is the third annual Tag Day event to take place at the University. Approximately 500 large, green tags will be placed across campus − from the libraries to the Decker School of Nursing, and everywhere in-between − to denote buildings, classroom spaces and equipment that donors have made possible.
In addition to the tags, students, faculty and staff can pick up buttons indicating "I Give Back" for donors or "I Benefit" for those who wish to show the impact donor gifts have had on their University experience.
According to the Binghamton University Foundation’s 2015 Annual Report, the University received over $7.5 million in donations in the 2014-15 fiscal year. These gifts pay for things not covered by tuition and state funding.
