Annual fundraiser to support student scholarships
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving powered by social media and collaboration. #GivingTuesday at CSC will be focused on raising money for student scholarships to support CSC students and programs. It will also be focused upon educating students, faculty, and the community about the positive effect philanthropy has.
Philanthropy is defined as the desire to promote the wellness of others, shown by monetary donations to good causes. Learn more about philanthropy and how it can help CSC on Nov. 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Student Center.
The event will teach students how to give back to the school and make a difference in the community. The Chadron State Foundation will give over $429,000 to CSC students in scholarships next year. #GivingTuesday is just another way the foundation raises money to fund these scholarships. The foundation will also be educating students and the community about The Next Horizon campaign is another program raising money for student scholarships with a goal of $40 million.
The event will have cards to be signed by students that will be sent to CSC alumni and friends as a way to show our appreciation for the money they donate that have made CSC scholarships possible.
