WGU Giving Day: Night Owls Unite is a special day for Night Owls all over the country to band together as one community to support WGU students. Support can be in the form of philanthropy and by sharing and championing WGU Giving Day messages to your personal networks. It is a great time for the Night Owl community to come together and give back in gratitude. 

On WGU Giving Day, you can use this toolkit to help raise emergency and scholarship funds to assist WGU students who are facing financial hardships. Your support makes access to education more equitable and affordable for all WGU students!

We're looking forward to your help in making WGU Giving Day a true success.
Thank you for being an ambassador for WGU!
