Maine Day of Giving Social Media Toolkit

Maine Day of Giving is 24-hour fundraising event coordinated by the University of Maine Annual Fund office, which coincides with Maine Day, the traditional day of service at the University of Maine. Whether you are currently on campus or not, you can participate in Maine Day by making a gift.

 

We’ve provided sample social media content for your use! Don’t forget to include #mainedayofgiving18! There will be special awards for those who help us push the message out in social media.

 


Here’s what you can do:

First, Create your own content!

By creating personalized content, and using the hashtag #mainedayofgiving18, you can create original, impactful content to share with friends. Make sure to tag your UMaine friends in a post encouraging/asking them to donate! The University of Maine Foundation has assembled messaging that can be put into a post on your personal social media profiles.

Just copy & paste into your social media – and don’t forget the #mainedayofgiving18 tag!

Consider tagging your fellow UMaine social media friends to encourage them to join you in giving back to UMaine!
