Thank You for #GivingTuesdayNow

May 07, 2020

Thank You
The Sigma Xi community came together for Giving Tuesday Now on May 5 to support a special campaign: Know the Virus, Defeat the Virus. Together, we met and exceeded our $10,000 fundraising goal! As of the morning of May 7, we raised $10,102! These funds will be used to help 10 teams of scientists and creators join together through our #SciCommMake virtual collaboration platform, which will convene in late-May in partnership with Science Talk

Thank you to all the donors who contributed so generously to this effort! 

If you still wish to make a gift to support Sigma Xi’s campaign, our fundraising page will remain open through May 8.

The projects created by the teams receiving awards funded through #SciCommMake will focus on innovative approaches to disseminating evidence-based messages about COVID-19. The projects will be primarily designed to reach non-traditional scientific audiences, counteract misinformation, and help defeat this virus. We look forward to sharing updates and impacts from these projects with you during the second half of 2020.

Thank you again for supporting Sigma Xi’s Giving Tuesday Now campaign. We’re grateful for your generosity and proud our community’s commitment to serving our fellow citizens during this difficult time.
