GIVING TUESDAY 2019

 

GIVING TUESDAY 2018

On Tuesday, November 27, 2018, Touro University California will participate in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. This year, our campaign supports the Alumni Association Scholarship Fund, which aids deserving TUC students by providing scholarships to assist with the cost of their education.    

The Touro University California Alumni Association Scholarship was introduced in 2012 by the TUC Alumni Association. $1,000 scholarships are awarded to full-time TUC students who demonstrate leadership skills, commitment to community improvement, and good academic standing.

Give a little, make a big impact.  The Touro community appreciates your generosity on this national day of giving as a vital part of our campus.  Remember to share your support across all of your social platforms with the hashtag #TUCGivingTuesday on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube!

GIVING TUESDAY 2017

Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday. On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, Touro University California will participate in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. This year, our campaign supports the Student Emergency Fund which helps TUC students across all programs in times of urgent need.  Together, we can ensure that our students have help when they need it.  

This Giving Tuesday, you can help our students in the times that they need it most.  At least 28 students had to evacuate during the North Bay Fires.  Some came back to find that they had lost their personal belongings or their rotation site housing.  The Student Emergency Fund makes it so that they can get back on their feet. 

The event made clear that when a crisis happens, help has to come immediately.  By joining with us on Giving Tuesday, you can be that help.  Without it, students are often forced to take a leave of absence.  Medical emergencies and natural disasters threaten to undo their efforts to help our communities and pursue careers in medicine, public health, and education.

Give a little, make a big impact.  The Touro community appreciates your generosity on this national day of giving as a vital part of our campus.  Remember to share your support across all of your social platforms with the hashtag #TUCGivingTuesday on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube!

GIVING TUESDAY 2016

Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday. On Tuesday, November 29, 2016, Touro University California participated in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. This year, our campaign supports the creation of a Meditation Garden, spearheaded by the Wellness, Academic Accomplishment, Resilience and Mindfulness (WARM) Program. WARM is a multi-faceted program which aims to create the wholesome physician of tomorrow; one whose self-care is the source of compassion and quality care for patients and develops resilience to become a lifelong learner. (See WARM's First Place win at ACOFP-CA!)

An outdoor garden in which students, faculty, and staff can have a quiet space to take advantage of fresh air and sunlight would help reinforce the lessons of the WARM curriculum. Additionally, the Meditation Garden would provide opportunities and tools to develop mindfulness skills, self-care behavior, and resilience for Touro students under high-stress conditions.

The intended Meditation Garden would be located behind the old hospital building (H-1), which already has existing benches, trees, and planting squares, which is an ideal space for an outdoor meditation area. It will be open to all students, faculty, and staff of Touro University California, and will be inclusive of multiple cultures and religions.

GIVING TUESDAY 2015

Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday.

On December 1, 2015, Touro University California participated in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. This year, our campaign supports the Diabetes Education Program, a community-based lifestyle program for people who have pre-diabetes or Type 2 diabetes. Touro is located in Solano, which is the second highest county in California where diabetes accounts for more hospitalizations than other counties.

For residents like Beatrice Waters, a 74-year-old Vallejo resident, the Diabetes Education Program (DEP) is paramount.

"I set my alarm at night to go off every two hours for fear of falling into a diabetic coma," she said. "I can't sleep, I can't think and I'm trying to get myself together. This disease scares me bad because my dad died of this."

Thanks to the Diabetes Education Program, Ms. Waters is now receiving the education she needs on how to control her disease.

We need your help to continue this program and help community members with diabetes, like Ms. Waters. Please consider donating today. Thank you!

GIVING TUESDAY 2014

Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday.

What is #GivingTuesday? We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
from www.givingtuesday.org

 

Since its inception in 1997, the students, faculty, and staff at Touro University California (TUC) have been giving back to the community around them. TUC is a non-profit, Jewish-sponsored independent institution with accredited programs to train physicians, pharmacists, physician assistants, nurses, public health professionals and teachers. Giving back to the community is a fundamental value on the Touro campus, where we regularly staff the local health clinics, facilitate health fairs and public health programs, and mentor K-12 students.

In the spirit of giving, we at TUC are participating in the #GivingTuesday 2014 movement (www.givingtuesday.org) with the hope that we reach beyond our campus, and back into history to restore this historic landmark and pay tribute to those who serve and once served.

Touro has become an integral and dedicated part of the northern California community. For this national day of giving, #GivingTuesday 2014, we are turning our attention to the place we call home—Mare Island, the former Naval Shipyardto restore one of our national treasures for all the men and women who have served our country and trained here.

Every day we are fortunate enough to walk in the footsteps of American military history and attend classes in buildings designated as historic landmarks. However, many of these landmarks are showing their 160 year age.

This year we are focusing on one such landmark, the Mare Island Hospital flagpole, in the hopes of restoring it to its former glory for our students and veterans. Built in 1869, this hospital campus and shipyard has served tens of thousands of sailors throughout every world war and conflict until 1996. Above it all flew our country's flag atop a beautiful 100-foot steel flagpole mast built to resemble the mast of the great ships of the Navy.

Additionally, Mare Island was home to a "flag loft" where thousands of flags were produced over 150 years including the famous flags raised at Iwo Jima. The tradition of raising the flag and seeing the Stars and Stripes reach the top is an unforgettable experience that we want to bring back to Mare Island to honor those who have tread here before us, but we need your help to do it.

Please help us on this day of giving. Together we can Raise the Flag on Mare Island!
