“Giving Tuesday is a great way to invest back into the KCC community, and your donation makes a huge impact in the lives of our students,” Teresa Durham, executive director of the KCC Foundation, said. “We encourage our College staff, alumni and friends to give throughout the week with the assurance that each dollar given will be directly invested to support KCC students.”
Giving Tuesday is a “global generosity movement” created in 2012 as a way to celebrate generosity and encourage people to give and do good works. In 2022 in the U.S. alone, the initiative inspired $3.1 billion in donations. For more information, visit givingtuesday.org.
