WOU Giving Day Toolkit

 

ABOUT WOU’S GIVING DAY

Western Oregon University’s Giving Day takes place on Tuesday, March 5, 2019. During this 24-hour period, we make a big push to collect gifts to support WOU students. Social media is at the core of our Giving Day success and we’d love your support!

Gifts can be made at wou.edu/give, by calling 503-838-8725, or visiting the WOU Foundation in the Cottage on campus.

 

HOW TO USE THIS TOOLKIT

On this page, you’ll find all the tools you need to get involved in Giving Day and help spread the word to your networks. We want to grow by the power of together and we need you to help make that happen!

We’ve provided graphics and sample social media text for you to share on your social media accounts. The information is broken down by save the date pieces for before Giving Day, posts on Giving Day, and thank you pieces for after Giving Day. Most pieces can be used as they are, but a couple of them are customizable. Please read the notes with those graphics on customization.

Tag us! If you’re posting about Giving Day, please tag the official WOU accounts: @WOUnews on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

All the hashtags: The official Giving Day hashtag is #WOUgivingday and we like to also use #WolvesGiveBack. WOU’s official all-purpose hashtag is #HowlAboutIt. Feel free to use all three! But please use at least #WOUgivingday.
