What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is global movement that takes place on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Following one of the biggest shopping days of the year, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday encourages generosity through philanthropy.  

Our Goals:

  • Experiential Learning - $60,000 Match: Students participate in Experiential Learning through internships, mentorships, study abroad, field work, etc. The Board of Trustees will match up to $60,000 to the Fund for Excellence in support of Experiential Learning. 
  • Emergency Student Assistance Campaign: Our goal is to raise $6,000 for the Fund for Excellence in support of Eureka College students who may need emergency assistance such as food, personal items, transportation, and more. 

Ways to Get Involved:  

  • Give by Phone: Call the Advancement Office at (309) 467-6317
  • Share with your network: We encourage you to share the challenge within your Eureka College social networks and post on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. 

Thank You: 

As a thank you for your contribution, we will send you a Eureka-branded t-shirt for all gifts of $80 or more. (While supplies last)
