Vol State #GivingTuesday Scholarships November 28

Help us spread the word!

#Giving Tuesday is coming up this Tuesday, November 28 and Vol State is participating in the fundraising effort.The money raised on #GivingTuesday this year will be used specifically for student book scholarships. The College Foundation has set a 24-hour goal of $5000, which would fund ten such scholarships. Donations can be made with a credit card on the college website at www.volstate.edu/foundation and then by clicking on the Giving tab. The College Foundation has been sharing messages from donors and student recipients on social media to kick-off the campaign.

#Giving Tuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. Organizers of the event say they want to “inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.”
