SUNY Broome and the Broome Community College Foundation will celebrate the sixth annual 24 Hours of Giving on Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2020. Also known as Giving Tuesday, it is a nationally recognized day of giving back to your community by volunteering your time or donating to local organizations. We challenge our alumni, community friends, students, faculty and local businesses to support SUNY Broome and make their gift today!
Giving Day may look a little different this year but the goal is unwavering – to raise funds for our campus and our students during a critical time in the college’s history. Though our physical presence on campus will not be as in year’s past, we will utilize our virtual engagement platforms through email, social media, videos, phonathon outreach and our website!
Our goals are simple: to engage our alumni and our community, to raise awareness of the needs of our students and our campus, to retain our current donors and encourage them to continue to support the college and lastly, to also engage and secure new donors. We believe our students are a worthwhile investment, and the future of the college and our community depends on their success. We are proud to offer more scholarships every year because of our generous donors, as the cost of going to college continues to increase. Many of our students cannot attend school without the support of scholarships!
We are so grateful that we have already received challenge gifts totaling over $40,000 which has been pledged by our Foundation Board of Directors, alumni and community friends as a challenge for others to give. Look for us on social media, email and our dedicated webpage: sunybroome.edu/broome24. The community will be able to tune into real time excitement and engage with one another.
This is a momentous day for the SUNY Broome family. We are resetting our clock, our donor counts and our goal! ALL NIGHT, ALL DAY, ALL #BROOME24.
All events will be taking place virtually this year as we do our part in keeping our staff, our students and our community safe!
