Giving the Gift of Education on #GivingTuesday

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Giving Tuesday is a national movement to remind people the holiday season is about giving back and helping those in need. It is on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving on December 2nd, after the shopping days of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday.

If you are looking for a good cause to join, consider The College of Westchester Charitable Foundation (CWCF). This foundation exists to raise scholarships for students. If not for the CWCF, worthy students, who are in need of a way to supplement their tuition costs, might not realize their educational goals. On #GivingTuesday donate to CWCF.
