Missouri Valley College Takes Part in #GivingTuesday
On Tuesday, November 28, Missouri Valley College will take part in #GivingTuesday, a global giving movement that has been driven by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. Since its founding in 2012, millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
After two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday –#GivingTuesday is a day for giving back. In dozens of towns, cities, regions and states, people are embracing this day as an opportunity to raise money for local nonprofits, schools and arts organizations.
In 2016, more than $177 million was raised online on #GivingTuesday. People participated in #GivingTuesday activities in 98 countries around the globe last year.
“We are excited to again take part in Giving Tuesday,” said MVC Vice President of Institutional Advancement Eric Sappington. “Last year was the first year Missouri Valley College was a part of the global day, and it was well received by many of our alumni and friends. We hope that more will join us again in this international day of giving.”
#GivingTuesday was born at 92nd Street Y (92Y), a community and cultural center in New York in 2012. Since then, people from different backgrounds, cultures and regions around the world have helped to create a global day of giving that reflects 92Y’s commitment to strengthening communities and repairing the world.
