On November 28, Randolph will join the worldwide Giving Tuesday (#GivingTuesday) movement for the College’s third annual day of giving.
Giving Tuesday is a globally recognized day of giving back and follows the holiday shopping days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On this day, individuals worldwide unite their efforts for the benefit of the charitable causes that matter most to them and for the betterment of their communities.
“Last year, more than 360 alumnae and alumni, parents, students, faculty and staff, and friends united to raise over $200,000 for the Annual Fund on Giving Tuesday,” said Tamara Jamerson ’95, Annual Fund director. “Thanks to their generosity, it was the largest online giving day in the College’s history. This year, our campaign theme is “Randolph Empowers” (#RandolphEmpowers), since the generosity of our donors is vital to empowering our students on their journey to discovering ‘the life more abundant.’”
Randolph is setting its sights even higher this year—with the goal of 500 donors in 24 hours. The College will need the support of the entire Randolph community—both behind and beyond the Red Brick Wall to reach this milestone.
All Annual Fund gifts given to Randolph on November 28 will count in the Giving Tuesday gift tally. The Annual Fund provides crucial unrestricted revenue that touches many facets of the Randolph experience, including scholarships and internships, faculty professional development, and campus beautification, just to name a few areas.
