About

MAKE YOUR GIFT. GET THE CORD. CHANGE A LIFE.

Congratulations on your graduation! Given the challenges you've faced over the last few semesters, you deserve to celebrate! Show your Husky pride by making a gift to support future BU students and we'll send YOU some special swag to show that you are a #Husky4Life. 

You may not realize it, but a lot of your BU experiences were available because alumni, parents and friends of the university cared enough to support your education. They funded scholarships, technology, professional experience grants, work spaces, research, emergency student assistance, and so much more.

THERE ARE A LOT OF WAYS TO GIVE.

  • Make a gift of $20.21 or more and receive a maroon and gold Philanthropy Cord and a "Proud BU Alumni" tech tattoo.
  • Make a gift of $5.00 or more and receive a special "Proud BU Alumni" tech tattoo. 
  • Don't need your Clicker for class anymore? Donate it at the BU Foundation offices in the Greenly Center and receive a "Proud BU Alumni" tech tattoo.
  • Become an Advocate (sign and and share the page) for a chance to win a BU spirit pack of swag if two of your classmates give because of your outreach. Make sure you're signed in when you share.
  • Upload a Personal Plea video encouraging you classmates to give for another chance to win BU swag.. 

It's our way to say thank you for your commitment to #GiveBackBU and your way to show how passionate you are about supporting the Husky experience. 

WHERE DOES MY DONATION GO?

This year, we are asking seniors to donate to keep Huskies at BU. Like you, underclassmen are facing huge challenges.  We are asking you to direct your donation to the Bloom On Fund for Student Opportunity which supports the greatest needs of today's Huskies. The Bloom up provides the immediate and flexible support needed most.

HOW CAN I MAKE MY GIFT? (Yes, we take VENMO)

You can donate online anytime or mail a check to the BU Foundation. BU Foundation, 50 E. Main St., 4th floor, Bloomsburg, PA 17815.

DOES MY $20.21 REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

Yes, yes, yes! Every gifts matters. When we add your gift to those of your classmates and the May 2021 grads, we should raise thousands of dollars to support your fellow students. 

WHERE DO I GET UPDATES?

Follow the Student Philanthropy Council on Twitter or Instagram @HuskiesGiveBack. 

I MADE MY GIFT, HOW DO I GET MY PHILANTHROPY CORD?

We will have several on campus events where you can pick up cord, or stop by the BU Foundation offices any weekday between 9:30 am and 4:00 pm. We are located on the 4th floor of the Greenly Center, located at 50 E. Main St. (across from Bloomin' Bagels). If you are at home, or completing coursework outside of Bloomsburg, please email sboucek@bloomufdn.org after you make your gift and your cord will be mailed to you.

WHERE CAN I GET INFORMATION ON THE COMMENCEMENT CEREMONIES?

The best place for updates is bloomu.edu/commencement. At this time, in person graduation ceremonies are scheduled for Friday, December 10 and Saturday, December 11. 

Campus Pick Up Dates
Updates
