Hilbert College is holding its annual Giving Day, with events and promotions around campus to encourage donations from students, staff, faculty and outside donors.
Hilbert offices will spend the day promoting giving through various social media platforms and asking friends and family to help the college reach its fundraising goals.
Kathleen Christy, the college’s vice president of institutional advancement, said the school has set a goal of 100 percent participation from faculty and staff and is hoping to raise more than last year’s record setting total of more than $50,000.
“People should feel compelled to donate today to show their support for our Hilbert students, the recipients of the funding and support generated during this great event,” she said.
Christy said that all funds raised will go toward helping students fulfill the school’s mission.
“True to our Franciscan Mission, which is to serve those in need, raising necessary funds to support our students is essential and fulfills our purpose to educate our students to become informed citizens committed to serving and strengthening their communities,” Christy said.
Hilbert Community members can visit West Herr Atrium, where HAWK Radio has set up a table and a poster has been laid out for the class 2021, faculty and staff to sign.
