Dickinson community exceeds its goals with more than $300,000 raised

Dickinsonians came together in a big way for Giving Tuesday, Nov. 28, giving more than $300,000 to support the college, its students, and its mission of preparing future leaders.

The outpouring of support shattered the day's total goal of $150,000 and also made the Board of Trustees Challenge a huge success. Several members of Dickinson's Board of Trustees launched a challenge this year through which matched up to $60,000 in gifts to the Dickinson Fund, supporting the full Dickinson experience. By the days end, gifts toward that challenge exceeded $160,000 in funding to the college's most vital areas.

Every gift—no matter the size—made a difference. Giving Tuesday donors helped provide scholarships and financial aid, make student-faculty research and internships possible, enhance the classroom experience and mentorship opportunities with faculty and provide leadership-building experiences through student life, athletics and much more.

Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 by several nonprofit leaders as a way to highlight the power of philanthropy and kick off the season of giving. Since then, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.
