Monday, December 9, 2019

Supporters contributed more than $175,000 toward student scholarships, enhanced classroom experiences and state-of-the-art facilities at Trine University during Giving Tuesday, Dec. 3.

A total of 198 donors gave $175,172.20 over the course of the day. The funds raised include a generous 2:1 match by the James Foundation for anything given toward student scholarships.

Giving Tuesday, held the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, has been celebrated since 2012. Intended to counter more commercial post-Thanksgiving events such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday seeks to celebrate and encourage charitable giving internationally at the beginning of the holiday season.
