#GivingTuesday #FGCGIVE

Bring Your Heart for FGC’s Day of Giving

FGC’s Day of Giving will be celebrated on Tuesday, November 27th. This day is inspired by #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. The concept is to give whether it’s time, donation, or your voice, resulting in positive changes for communities. In 2017, FGC and the community raised over $26,000, and 100% of those funds were used to support FGC students through scholarships and FGC programs.

For this year’s FGC Day of Giving, we are offering even more ways to “bring your heart” and give back. For the second year in a row the family of JY Wilson, one of the founders of FGC, has pledged $10,000 in matching funds on this day.  Therefore, your first $10,000 raised will be matched dollar for dollar by the family of JY Wilson.

Whether you’re a student, employee, alumni or friend of the college, we want you to join our movement and help us make a difference in the lives of students.

Here’s what you can do before November 27th!

  • Share an #unselfie of yourself and tell us why it’s important to you to give back with the #FGCgive. The most creative #unselfie will win an awesome giveaway!
