Since 2015, the DFI Educational Trust has participated in #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.

#GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and follows the widely-recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

#GivingTuesday donations made to the DFI Educational Trust help fund DFI scholarship programs that support engineering students in achieving their educational goals. The Trust raised $10,000 on #GivingTuesday in 2015 and $6,800 in 2016.
