Big Orange Give is the university’s day of giving. A 24-hour online challenge for alumni, friends, parents, students, faculty, staff, and fans to show their support of Rocky Top. This year more than ever, we need to support current and future Vols!
Your work as a Big Orange Give ambassador makes a big difference. You help bring in more gifts for the people, places, and programs you love most at UT. Follow the timeline on the next pages to help set a new record day of giving for UT. Let’s get started!
The You+2 campaign challenges you to make a gift of any amount and recruit at least two others to donate as well. When you reach this goal, you will receive an EXCLUSIVE ambassador gift.
Access your unique ambassador dashboard to track personal fundraising goals with real-time updates about how much money you raise and who is giving.
You can create an account to log into your dashboard with your email address and a password. Please use the email address that you have previously shared with us; otherwise, we may not know it’s you! Now you are ready to log in and view the names of those who have given using the link you have shared with others.
If you forget your password, you can request a reset code be sent to your email address. You can find the link to reset just below the “Log In” button.
You will not be able to register your dashboard until you receive your unique URL. If you have not received your URL by November 2, please email Alyssa Cooper at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dear [recipient’s preferred name],
I hope that you’re doing well! [Insert a relevant or personal anecdote].
Today is Big Orange Give, the University of Tennessee’s 24-hour day of giving. Now, more than ever, we need to support our Vols. This year, Big Orange Give is reaching for a goal of 8,000 gifts.
I am raising funds to help current and future Vols, and could really use your support. A gift of any amount would help. You can make a donation on UT’s Big Orange Give website by clicking here: bigorangegive.utk.edu. If you are on social media, follow #BigOrangeGive all day to watch the fun and progress.
Thank you in advance for your support. Go Vols!
