The Elmira College community recently raised over $30,000 for student scholarships through Giving Tuesday 2015 on December 1.
For the 2015 fundraiser, two members of the Elmira College Board of Trustees challenged alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends of the College with a $20,000 gift, if 100 gifts were received during the one-day event. The goal was met, with over $10,000 contributed, and the additional $20,000 was donated in support of student scholarships.
This year marked the third year that Elmira College participated in Giving Tuesday. The national giving holiday has proven to be a successful event for the College, helping to raise more than $130,000 since 2013. All gifts to Elmira College, large and small, combine to make an immediate and direct difference for our students. These gifts ensure that Elmira College continues to offer a top-tier liberal arts and sciences education at one of the most beautiful small private colleges in the country.
