Giving Tuesday Thank You

On behalf of current and future students, we extend an heartfelt thank you to the alumni, parents, employees, and friends of Elmira College who supported yesterday’s #GivingTuesday event.

Thanks to your generosity, we reached and surpassed our fundraising goal.

This year, members of the Elmira College Alumni Board pledged an additional $20,000 in gifts, if 120 gifts were received during the one-day event.

The Elmira College community accepted that challenge and rallied with 151 gifts by midnight. Matched with the $20,000 gift from members of the Alumni Board, a total of $47,066 was raised.

This year marked the fifth year that Elmira College participated in #GivingTuesday. The global giving holiday has proven to be a successful event for the College, helping to raise more than $227,066 in #GivingTuesday funds since 2013. All the gifts, large and small, combine to allow Elmira College to continue delivering to students a top-tier collegiate experience at one of the most beautiful small private colleges in the country.
