#GivingTuesday celebrates the act of giving – on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On December 1, 2015, the Grand Rapids Community College family and community will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. It is the opportunity to join more than 10,000 partners around the world in encouraging giving on #GivingTuesday. Just as the retail world has benefitted from coordinating national shopping days across many brands and platforms, #GivingTuesday does the same for organizations dedicated to serving our communities through philanthropy.
