About

Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday . . . 


The Bloomsburg University Foundation will celebrate its fourth GivingTuesday campaign. This year, BU and the BU Foundation are asking donors to join the millions around the world who will be participating in this global generosity movement by making a gift to support scholarships for BU students.

"During this season of giving thanks and giving back, we want to take this opportunity to encourage our donors to support BU's number one need - student scholarships. By coming together and making a gift to the Bloom On Fund, we can make a difference in the lives of so many deserving students. That's what this day is all about." - Jerome Dvorak, BU Foundation Executive Director

All donor support to BU during GivingTuesday will directly help Bloomsburg students by increasing the amount of scholarship dollars available to students, including emergency scholarships, which help make unforeseen situations more manageable.

In 2020, the BU Foundation celebrated a 69% increase in donors who participated in GivingTuesday, which included a 210% increase in donors who joined the global movement by making their first gifts to support students.

This GivingTuesday, lead donors will be inspiring generosity through matching gifts. These challenges will run throughout the day to maximize the impact of all gifts that come in.

Please consider creating a personal plea below and tell your friends and family about our campaign. Spreading the word gets our voices heard and the donations rolling in!

Support can also be extended over the phone at 855 GIVE-2-BU or by mail to Bloomsburg University Foundation, Greenly Center, 50 E. Main St., Bloomsburg, PA 17815. All gifts should be made payable to Bloomsburg University Foundation.

“I truly cannot express how grateful I am for the scholarship I received. That financial help allowed me to focus on my studies, even when I missed out on some in-person clinical experiences due to the pandemic, and provided me with the opportunity to pursue this externship fully.”

Calling all BU Nursing alumni, students and supporters!

We all know nurses do more than care for individuals. As we have seen since the pandemic, they are at the forefront in health care and public health. Nurses are distinct from other healthcare providers as they have a wide scope of practice and approach to medical care. They play an integral role in promoting health, preventing illness, and caring for all individuals.

Spencer and Denise Rogers '92 will match $50 per BU Nursing alumni, student, or supporter up to $2,500. Take advantage of this matching gift to really maximize your impact! Be sure to check the nursing supporter box when checking out.
