Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is the world’s largest generosity movement that encourages people to do good and celebrate giving.  At Niagara College, Giving Tuesday is about supporting what matters most – our students.

New this year!  Thanks to the generous support of a longtime Niagara College donor, your Giving Tuesday gift will have double the impact.  The first $10,000 donated to the Nourishing Minds fund will be matched by a wonderful community partner who believes that all students deserve a warm meal and basic essentials, so they can focus on being healthy, happy and learn.  Students already have a lot on their plate and they shouldn’t have to worry about where their next meal will come from.

Every dollar raised on Giving Tuesday (November 28) will go towards Nourishing Minds, Niagara College’s student food insecurity initiative, helping to provide emergency digital grocery cards to students in need.  Since it’s inception, Nourishing Minds has issued over 8,200 grocery gift cards allowing students to purchase food, toiletries and other life essentials.  In addition to gift cards, NCSAC also hosts the Rise & Shine program on both campuses on Tuesday’s, Wednesday’s and Thursday’s, to provide breakfast items like yogurt, granola bars and juice to students on their way to class.

Your kind support will make a significant impact on a student’s life.
