“Twice as Nice” Giving Challenge

Brightly decorated trees, delicious homemade cookies, parties and presents are all part of the Christmas season. But the true meaning of Christmas is symbolized by the many acts of giving and sharing with those in need.

This holiday season, you can double your Christmas spirit through Gonzaga University’s “Twice as Nice” Giving Challenge. For the second year in a row, an anonymous donor family will match any gift, up to $100,000, made to the Fund for Gonzaga between now and December 31. That means your gift will make an impact “twice as nice” this year, potentially providing $200,000 in additional support to the University.

Gifts made to the Fund for Gonzaga are especially critical because FFG supports the University’s highest priorities. This important enterprise focuses on three core pillars: the complete student experience, faculty and, most importantly, scholarships. That means your gift not only supports the learning environment, but also ensures that talented and deserving students, the ones best equipped to change the world for the better, have access to an exemplary Jesuit education regardless of their financial circumstances.

Even if you have already made a gift this year, you can be “twice as nice” and make a second contribution to the Fund for Gonzaga and all the students it supports. A year-end gift is a powerful reflection of your dedication to Gonzaga’s mission and ensures that we are able to continue the inspirational work of educating men and women who will carry on our tradition of serving others. Plus, gifts made by December 31 can help reduce the amount of taxes you owe next April.

Remember, there is no such thing as too much Christmas spirit. So decorate that tree with twice as many lights, eat twice as many cookies and throw twice as many parties for your friends and loved ones. But also remember to be “twice as nice” to Gonzaga’s students by making a gift to the Fund for Gonzaga. Visit gonzaga.edu/giveonline.
