#GivingTuesday efforts raise $10K for student Gap scholarship

Because of you, we DID!!! For the first time ever, JCSU participated in the global phenomenon known as Giving Tuesday on Nov. 27, 2018. Part of the informal post-Thanksgiving holidays Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday focuses on supporting nonprofits, philanthropic organizations and institutions that better communities worldwide. The online campaign focused on raising funds for the President’s Gap Scholarship Fund, which covers the financial aid shortfall many deserving students face. Even amounts as little as $500 have been known to prevent students from completing their education, and the fund was created to address this. University Communications and Marketing crafted a social media campaign that shared some success stories of students who had benefitted from the fund, and the university received overwhelming support from the Smithite Family. As a result of combined efforts, the campaign raised $10,000 for current students. Pat yourselves on the back and Go Bulls!
