GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. It has grown into a global movement that inspires millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.
Pellissippi State Foundation’s 2020 theme is “SOS” (Suite of Support) for students. The funds in our Suite of Support are aligned with the College’s focus on holistic student support. They are our “go to” funds employed when students find themselves in danger of dropping out due to loss of income, crisis situations, homelessness or hunger.
Our four SOS funds have matching gift partners. Get ready to double your donation! Gifts made between November 16, 2020 – December 1, 2020 will be credited toward the GivingTuesday campaign.
