Thank-A-Giver Day

Thank-A-Giver Day

#CampbellTAGDay is Thursday, Oct. 26

What is #CampbellTAGDay?

Every year on the Thursday before Homecoming, more than 400 tags are placed on buildings and items — including offices, campus landmarks, sports equipment, and classrooms — to serve as a visual reminder that donor generosity has helped make Campbell what we know and love.

TAG Day, or Thank A Giver Day, allows students the opportunity to share their appreciation to our donors through social media and written thank you notes. Join us and show your appreciation for donors who made the Campbell experience possible.

How Students Can Get Involved

1. Snap

For a free T-shirt & chance to win a $1,000 scholarship

Record a short video of you saying thanks to donors with an item tagged around campus and post it on your Instagram or Twitter feeds with the #CampbellTAGDay hashtag. Alumni will vote on their favorite student video, and the winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship. 2nd and 3rd place will also receive a prize.

*If your account is private or to confirm we see your video, email your video to giving@campbell.edu Deadline for submissions is 5pm on TAG Day. All videos are subject to being posted online.

For a free T-shirt & chance to win an Echo Dot

Take a selfie with an item tagged around campus you’ve benefited from and post it on your social media feeds with a short note of thanks and the #CampbellTAGDay hashtag. Students who post their selfie to social media will be entered for a chance to win an Echo Dot.

Winner will be selected by the Office of Stewardship & Donor Relations for the most creative,  sincere, and viral selfie of thanks.

Click each tag to learn a little bit about the names and stories behind some of the most prominent buildings on campus. Supporters impact nearly every aspect of campus life from capital projects to enrichment opportunities like study abroad. Last year, nearly 10,300 gifts made an impact of more than $21 million. Alumni contributed about 2,400 of those gifts and 96 percent of University employees donated.

The University recently launched the Campbell Leads campaign, which seeks support to provide opportunities for students to continue to develop quality leadership skill and experiences. Campaign gifts can be made to support the construction of a state-of-the-art student union or increase the endowment to provide more scholarship opportunities.
