Giving Tuesday donations will be matched

Nov. 26, 2018     

     Thanks to an anonymous donor, all funds raised by Ashland Community and Technical College's Foundation on Giving Tuesday will be generously matched.
     Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
What better gift than supporting education?
     “An investment in our college helps us better serve our students and community,” said Brooke Seasor, director of resource development at ACTC. “Every donation big or small makes a difference in the lives of our students.”
     A donation to Ashland Community and Technical College's Foundation is an investment in the lives of students, businesses and our communities who benefit from the education, training and other services we offer. You can even choose the fund that you want to support. One hundred percent of your gift will be used in the way that you designate: equipment and supplies for skilled trades programs, student emergency fund, president’s discretionary fund, Greatest Needs Fund, scholarship fund, or in memory or honor of someone.
     Every contribution large or small makes a real, tangible difference in the lives of our students. Make your gift on Tuesday, Nov. 27 by visiting our online giving page at bit.ly/actcgivingtuesday or calling 606-326-2092. The foundation can accept credit cards, checks, donations in person or by phone.
     For anyone wanting to make a donation in person, cookies and assistance will be provided from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Tuesday in room L-266 at the College Drive Campus.
