#GivingTuesday Movement at Atlantic Cape Raises $2,565 for Scholarships

December 7, 2016

For the first time, Atlantic Cape Community College joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide on Nov. 29.

A total of  $2,565 from 61 donations was raised toward scholarships on the day of giving. #GivingOpporTuesday, a play on the college’s tag line, “Opportunity Starts Here,” was used on social media leading up to and on the day to encourage engagement from donors and participants in the college community.
