Make Your Contribution to Sandburg This Giving Tuesday

GALESBURG — The Carl Sandburg College Foundation invites community members, alumni, businesses and organizations to show their support for student success on Giving Tuesday, coming up Nov. 28.

Giving Tuesday is a global day of generosity that takes place each year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This year, the Sandburg Foundation is aiming to surpass its 2022 Giving Tuesday total of $22,000 and expand its network of supporters by accepting contributions from at least 100 donors. The foundation also doubled its contributions from Sandburg employees during last year’s Giving Tuesday campaign.

The Sandburg Foundation supports student success by distributing hundreds of thousands of dollars each year to Sandburg students through scholarships, assistance grants, innovation grants and more.

“A gift of any size makes a positive difference in the life of a Sandburg student. Your support is more than a financial contribution, it’s a belief and investment in current and future students as they set out to achieve their academic and career goals,” said Eric Johnson, chief advancement officer.

Donors can give to their passion by choosing exactly what area or department their contribution goes to, or they can have it used where Sandburg needs it most. The most popular designations for donations include the foundation’s unrestricted fund, scholarships/financial aid, student success grants and athletics.
