Bay College Responds to Need by Joining #GivingTuesdayNow



#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity taking place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. The day is designed to drive an influx of generosity, citizen engagement, business philanthropy activation, and support for communities.

At a time when we are all experiencing the global pandemic, generosity gives everyone power to make a positive change in the lives of others. It’s a day for all to stand together and give back, no matter who or where we are.

Bay College is participating in #GivingTuesdayNow to support students with a goal to Educate All. It is a time to support current students with financial challenges including food and housing insecurities. It is a time to equip new students with tools to enter the workplace.

We each have something to give, the power to make an impact with acts of generosity. Please share what you can and help educate all to a brighter future. It’s not about size, it is about building community, giving from the heart. Make a student smile. Change a life forever. Education is the gift that keeps on giving.

Visit the Bay College GivingTuesdayNow web page to help Educate All. If you prefer, mail your donation payable to the Bay College Foundation, 2001 N Lincoln Rd, Escanaba, MI 49829, phone 906-217-1700, or Email Bay%20College%20Foundation and we will contact you. Thank you for uniting together, sharing the gift of education in this time of need.
