#GivingSPOONday 2019





You’ve heard about Black Friday. You’ve heard about Small Business Saturday. You’ve heard about Cyber Monday.

Have you heard about Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is the charitable response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday – the way to kick off the season of whatever holiday you celebrate by giving…to your favorite charitable organization. This worldwide day of giving takes place the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving – this year, Tuesday, December 3.

On Tuesday, Dec. 3, by making a gift to the Spoon River College Foundation, you have an opportunity to be a part of that movement right here at Spoon River College -- to "SNAP" into the season of giving; to help change lives for good.

We call it #GivingSPOONday.

This year, our goal is 200 separate gifts to the SRC Foundation by the end of the day December 3, 2019.  Whether that gift is $1, $1000, or anything in between or beyond, it counts toward our goal.



How can my gift help?

In short, anything you want at Spoon River College. While we encourage and appreciate support for our annual fund so that the SRC Foundation can quickly provide in the areas of greatest need at SRC, you can direct your gift to any scholarship, program or facility at SRC.

All gifts are important and appreciated, and you make a huge impact, no matter what you give or where it goes.

    Here's what your gift could mean:
  • $5: An art palette for five SRC Art Students
  • $15: A student's welding jacket -- safety first!
  • $25: An hour of teaching for 10 students in our Adult Ed Dept.
  • $30: A teaching stethoscope for a future nurse
  • $50: A new uniform for a student athlete
  • $100: Graphing calculator for LRC student use
  • $150: A student's full tuition and fees for one credit hour
  • $250: A bag of corn seed for our Agriculture Department's Land Lab
  • $500: A faculty grant to bring new, innovative ideas to a classroom
  • $1000: A new classroom projector or a bench at one of our beautiful facilities

How can I get involved?
