On Tuesday, November 29, Elmira College once again will participate in the global day of giving, #GivingTuesday. Funds raised on this day will support College scholarships, which make an immediate and direct impact for many aspiring, young scholars.
Again this year, members of the Board of Trustees are challenging alumni, parents, and friends of the College to give 100 donations throughout the day. If the goal is reached, the Trustees will make an additional donation of $20,000.
#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give. This effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners—nonprofits, businesses and corporations as well as families and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media to create a global movement dedicated to giving around the world.
