With 569 donors and more than $150,000 in gifts, Randolph posted its single largest day of giving ever on Giving Tuesday, held Nov. 28.
Randolph participated in the world-wide day of giving for the third straight year, and the College exceeded its goal of 500 donors. 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.
All Annual Fund gifts given to Randolph on November 28 counted towards 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.
On campus, the Office of Institutional Advancement hosted several events to get students involved and to show their appreciation, including signing thank you cards and posing in an “unselfie” photo booth during lunch at Cheatham Dining Hall.
“We are so grateful to our wonderful team of ambassadors and volunteers who shared our message and encouraged their classmates and friends to join them in participating,” said Tamara Jamerson ’95, Annual Fund director. “We are also incredibly thankful for our students, alumnae and alumni, faculty and staff, parents, and friends of the College who so graciously lent their support and helped make this Giving Tuesday a resounding success!”
