People can make a difference on #GivingTuesday, November 27, by donating to Vol State student scholarships with the Volunteer State College Foundation. Organizers call #GivingTuesday a “global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.” The Volunteer State College Foundation has set a goal to increase donor giving during the 24-hour #GivingTuesday event. Donations can be made online.
“No amount is too small, because each dollar makes an impact in a student’s life,” said Foundation development officer, Alison Muncy. “The money raised during the #GivingTuesday campaign will fund book and tuition scholarships for Vol State students. We’ll be sharing the stories of those students and have messages from our donors on social media over the next few weeks.”
Last year, the Volunteer State College Foundation was able to raise enough money on #GivingTuesday to fund nine book scholarships for students at the college. To donate and for more information visit www.volstate.edu/foundation
