You can go to your college’s #CUNYTUESDAY page (search here) and look for Ambassador opportunities and ways to use your social media contacts to spread the word.

Each donation made to a participating college will be disbursed directly from GiveGab via direct deposit within 5 business days.
Q. How much of my donation goes to the college?
Credit Card processing fees apply at 2.5% + $0.30. You are given the option to cover the fees, and if you choose this option, 100% of your online charitable gift will go to the receiving organization. All donations are final and cannot be refunded.
Any donations processed outside of the Giving Day donation period through GiveGab.com, or subsequent recurring donations, are also subject to the transaction fees outlined above.

The school you choose to support will have access to your name and email address. This information is used solely to send thank you messages, provide the option to receive future notifications, and to notify you of future activities.
Q. Do I need to create an account with GiveGab?
No. You do not need to create an account to make a donation. The benefits of creating an account include having your tax receipts collected in one location, being able to track your donations, follow the school you support, and engage in future volunteering and donations. Your tax receipt is emailed immediately upon processing your donation. To claim a donation as a deduction on U.S. taxes, you should retain the donation receipt as an official record.
