The College will take part in Giving Tuesday 2019 on Tuesday, Dec. 3. Donations can be made to OCC’s general fund, or can be directed to specific programs such as Adopt-a-Family, student scholarships or veterans services. All donations can be directed to the Orange Coast College Foundation.
This year, OCC’s Foundation has $100,000 in matching funds to support donors’ efforts on Giving Tuesday. An anonymous donor has pledged matching funds of $50,000, and the Associated Students of Orange Coast College have once again offered a match of $50,000 to help endow student scholarships.
Now in its eighth year, Giving Tuesday is an international effort to inspire personal philanthropy and charitable giving during the holiday season. Largely fueled by social media, the event takes place on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and widely recognized retail events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many people participate in end-of-year giving.
