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 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. These contributions ensure future generations can find their place at Elmira College. 

Our goal for Giving Tuesday 2022 (Tuesday, November 29, 2022) is $50,000 and 250 gifts. Large or small, cash or stock, your gift will 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. 

Similar to last year, we will be asking students to share their stories so that you can hear how Elmira College is their place. Stop back to this page to find these stories and more. And be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter throughout the day on Nov. 29 to learn more about how your support is impacting our students.


Elmira Everlasting

Started in 2018, Elmira Everlasting is a day of giving focused on Elmira College and raising support for EC students and programs.

Elmira Everlasting 2022 was a huge success. We received 433 gifts, totaling over $100,000.  Thanks to the continuing outpour of support, we exceeded our goal by $50,000 and surpassed giving for the past four years. 

Maintaining their title again, the Class of 2008 earned the title the Most Everlasting Class. New this year, the Most Everlasting Current Class title goes to the Class of 2025. In addition to bragging rights, these classes will have a banner proudly hung in the EC Campus Center. 

On behalf of the entire EC Campus Community, we would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone that supported Elmira Everlasting. Your commitment ensures future generations can find “their place” at Elmira College. 

“As we leave your fair halls, untried paths to know, as you have taught us, be it ever so.”
