Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College to Participate in GivingTuesday

Mount Gay, W.Va. – Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College will be participating in GivingTuesday on December 1, 2020.

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on December 1, and throughout the year.

Southern is joining GivingTuesday to help raise money for the Southern West Virginia Community College Foundation, which helps Southern students through scholarships and other monetary gifts.

“The Southern West Virginia Community College Foundation helps numerous Southern students each semester, and we rely on the kindness and generosity of friends like you to make that possible,” Rita Roberson, Southern’s Executive Director of Institutional Advancement and Marketing, said. “We hope we can count on your donation. No gift is too small.”

GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

People demonstrate generosity in many ways on GivingTuesday. Whether it’s helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving to causes we care about, every act of generosity counts. GivingTuesday has raised billions of dollars for critical causes around the world and gets 21 billion impressions on social media from people and organizations speaking up for the causes that matter to them and encouraging others to get involved in their communities.

“GivingTuesday inspires people all around the world to embrace their power to drive progress around the causes they care about, not just on one day but throughout the year.” Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s CEO, and co-founder, said. “With country and community leaders, millions of organizations, and countless givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world.”
