On Tuesday, Dec. 3, the Moraine Valley Community College Foundation is once again participating in #GivingTuesday, which reminds us of the importance of giving to others during the holidays.

The Foundation and its donors have awarded more than 200 scholarships this year. These scholarships changed the lives of many of our students.

However, 1,400 Moraine Valley students applied and qualified for scholarships this year, leaving many other students who need and deserve scholarships.

Our theme this year is “This Is Why” because our generous donors give for many reasons. Some give to pay it forward. Some give in memory of a loved one, and others give to honor an accomplishment, mark an anniversary, or celebrate an achievement. This year’s Moraine Valley Foundation Giving Tuesday has a goal to raise a full-tuition scholarship ($4,000) to award to a deserving student.
