What Is Giving Tuesday?

On Tuesday, November 27, Emmanuel College will take part in #GivingTuesday—a global celebration of philanthropy and service to nonprofit organizations. It is a day to pause from your holiday shopping and give back to the organization that means the most to you.

Your gift—combined with the generosity of the entire Emmanuel family—makes a profound impact. With 90% of our students applying for financial aid, your Giving Tuesday gift enables the College to increase financial aid awards to our hardworking, deserving students.

Join us as together we raise $75,000 for current and future Saints!
