Did you skip out on a second helping of turkey to hit the mall on Thanksgiving night?
Did you get up at an obscene hour to go stand in line at Best Buy on Black Friday?
Did your office productivity plummet on Cyber Monday because of all the online deals you were raking in?
If you answered yes to any (or all) of these questions, then maybe it’s time to replenish your soul from countless hours of unadulterated consumerism with an act of charity. And we have just the deal for you!
In honor of #GivingTuesday, every gift to The Foundation will be matched dollar for dollar. All you have to do is act now. But wait! There’s more!

#GivingTuesday is Dec 3, 2013.
#GivingTuesday is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support non-profit organizations.
In 2009, Monroe County Community College received a Federal Title III Grant. Thanks to this grant, we have an opportunity to match your unrestricted gift dollar for dollar.
As of June 30, 2012 we have received unrestricted gifts and pledges in the amount of $93,748. With the match from the Federal Title III Grant, that amount equals $187,496.
