#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. On November 29, at any time of the day, you are invited to watch a poignant video and hear from one of our inspirational students about the transformational impact of philanthropy. We also invite you to donate at any time.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events following the holiday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many individuals begin to focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

The Polk State College Foundation is integrating #GivingTuesday as part of Give the Gift of Education annual appeal. This important campaign raises scholarship funds primarily for emergency situations when students need a small hand up to see them through challenging times that might hinder their attainment of a higher education. Whether you choose to donate online or by mail, gifts of all amounts are encouraged and greatly appreciated! Join us on #GivingTuesday – November 29th – and be part of our mission to have a scholarship for every student who needs one to be able to earn a college degree.
