#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday at Chadron State will focus on raising money for student scholarships and support of CSC programs. In addition, #GivingTuesday will help educate our campus and community about the positive effect philanthropy has had on Chadron State College.
By definition, philanthropy is “the desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed especially by the generous donation of money to good causes.”
The Chadron State Foundation has a goal of reaching donors on #GivingTuesday to raise money for student scholarships and program support. The CS Foundation will give over $429,000 to Chadron State students in scholarships next year.
#GivingTuesday is another part of the Fall Fund Drive which raises nearly $200,000 from Chadron State administration, faculty, staff and students and from leaders, friends and supporters in the Chadron community. Learn more about the Chadron State Foundation.
Help spread the word to your friends, family and others on social media. Snap a pic of yourself or screen shot of your donation and share on social media with #CSCUnselfie and encourage others to support the great things happening at Chadron State!
If you can, give to CSC and help students attend college. If you are unable to give money learn how to give in other ways, such as giving your time to others in need through The Big Event or other worthy community causes.
