Voorhees College exceeds Giving Tuesday Goal

Denmark, S.C. – Voorhees College exceeded its Giving Tuesday goal on Nov. 30, raising more than $130,000. The original fundraising goal was $125,000 in celebration and acknowledgment of the college’s 125th anniversary. Giving Tuesday is a global celebration of philanthropy and service to nonprofit organizations. 

Faculty, staff, students, alumni and supporters of Voorhees College made an effort to raise as much money as possible. Businesses and corporations also donated funds to the campaign. 

Throughout the day, on Giving Tuesday, faculty, staff and alumni went live on social media to encourage others to give.

The funds that have been raised will be used to support scholarships for students and in other ways to ensure student success.
