GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration happening on December 3, 2019. 

Berkeley Community Scholars (BCS) is joining the Global GivingTuesday Movement to encourage our community to celebrate the journey of our scholars and thank those who give to our organization by making the scholarships, mentoring, and college success advising possible.

We celebrate the 7th year of a movement that invited citizens to show their generosity to those people and organizations who make our community better for ALL.  

Recognizing that we spent $3.7 billion on Thanksgiving, $6.2 billion on Black Friday, and $7.9 billion on Cyber Monday in 2018, Giving Tuesday allows us to make a conscious choice to provide for our local community “heroes” all over the globe.

If for you, education was “the great equalizer” or a “challenge you survived” or a “long lost dream”, help us make the dream of a college degree a reality for our students. Our scholars are navigating through the challenges and barriers, economic hardship, under-resourced households and/or limited knowledge of the road map of obtaining a degree – help us provide the support. That’s who BCS supports, mentors and guides throughout the journey.

Can you give 1% of your holiday spending on us (or an organization in your community providing much-needed services and resources)?  Just think if our non-profit community had 178 million to provide the safety net and services, we could truly move the needle on our most challenging issues and challenged members of society.  Please plan on joining us this year. Truly one person at a time, we can make the difference we want to see in our small worlds in one day!
