#GIVINGTUESDAY at St. Francis College

This giving season through early December we invite the St. Francis College community to be active in sharing the spirit of giving through the 5th annual St. Francis College #GivingTuesday. #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live –we ask that the St. Francis College community join this effort.

The funds donated to the Giving Tuesday effort will go towards the Fund for St. Francis benefiting each and every person, place, and program at St. Francis College. Through generous donations we are ensuring that future generations of Terriers experience the benefit of a Franciscan education.

*See the incentives tab for the opportunity to visit Assisi, study abroad, experience the Barclay's Center suite and more!

 

GOOD NEWS – Generous donors, that choose to be remain anonymous, will match each every dollar you give dollar for dollar up to $50,000!
