Give the gift of education Nov. 30

Nov 5, 2021Courtney Morris

The season of generosity is almost here. Get a head start by giving the gift of education Nov. 30 on Giving Tuesday.

The San Jacinto College Foundation invites you to help provide scholarships for students who could not complete a degree or certificate without financial help. You may also select other funds you want to support, including Foundation programs and initiatives that directly impact students.

Giving Tuesday

The Foundation's 2021 Giving Tuesday fundraising goal is $10,000.

Foundation scholarships help students like Zahra Cope, who could not have completed her associate degree otherwise.

"The scholarships I have received through the San Jacinto College Foundation have provided a great deal of financial relief for me, and I can't thank these scholarship donors enough," Cope said.

Community support also encourages students like Antonio Moran to reach career goals one step at a time.

"This scholarship is like the stepping stone to the road of success," said Moran, Promise for Their Future Scholarship recipient. "I truly believe that with a little help and a strong will anything is possible."

A global day of giving back, Giving Tuesday began in 2012 on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, encouraging people to do good. Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday inspires millions of people worldwide to collaborate and celebrate generosity.
