What are Cougar Ambassadors?

The strength of #GivingTuesday is social media and Cougar Ambassadors. After you sign up as an Ambassador online, you can send emails or post on social media with unique links to WSU's #GivingTuesday page to help share the message of philanthropy at WSU. We encourage our Cougar Ambassadors to change their profile and cover photos and share the message of giving with their friends and colleagues in the days leading up to #GivingTuesday.
