Did you know that 100% of EC students are offered merit scholarships and 92% receive some type of need-based assistance?  Join for our two annual days of giving - Giving Tuesday and Elmira Everlasting - to help support continued scholarships and need-based aid to EC students.


Elmira Everlasting

Elmira Everlasting, the 24-hour giving challenge, raises money from students, alumni, and friends of the College to support our Soaring Eagles through student scholarships. 

Like in past years, the 2023 event held on April 26 received a strong outpouring of support. 

Overall, more than $73,000 was raised through 509 gifts.

To add a little fun competition, a Class Challenge put alumni and students against each other to see which class could bring in the most gifts. The Class of 2008 retained their title of Most Everlasting Class, while the Class of 2025 retained the title of Most Everlasting Current Class. In addition to bragging rights, these classes get to have a banner proudly hung in the Elmira College Campus Center.

"Since Freshman year, our class has always stepped up huge for competitions. Any way we can show our love and support for EC, we were there loud and proud." – Class of 2008

Elmira College Giving Tuesday

An international day of giving, Giving Tuesday occurs each year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. In 2021, EC's Giving Tuesday efforts raised over $25,000 through 163 gifts. For 2022, we brought in 173 gifts and more than $34,000. These contributions ensure that future generations can find their place at Elmira College. 

Large or small, cash or stock, your gifts support a place where students learn to meet the complexities and challenges of today’s world and learn to lead in their own way. Here, they develop critical thinking skills and prepare for the professional world that lays ahead of them. 

As in years past, students have shared their stories so that you can hear how Elmira College is their place. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about how your support is impacting our students.
