Following in the tradition of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Cedarville University faculty and staff members joined the nation in “Giving Tuesday,” an effort to raise money for a charitable cause. In Cedarville’s case, it was for a pair of $2,500 scholarship for current students.
According to the initiative, if 65 percent of Cedarville’s faculty and staff made a financial contribution by 5 p.m. on December 2, an anonymous donor would contribute $5,000 to the University for the scholarship fund. The goal was reached 10 minutes before the deadline as 66 percent of the faculty and staff contributed to the cause. The campaign raised $25,156 in one day.
