The Parkland College Foundation is hosting a district-wide Parkland Spirit Day on Wednesday, March 11, to raise funds for Parkland College as part of the 2020 Day of Giving.
Starting at 12 a.m. and running to midnight, individuals, businesses, and groups are asked to visit www.parkland.edu/givingday, search for a fund they care about (scholarships, Athletics, etc.), and donate any amount. The Creating Impact for Parkland fund, a fund that addresses the college's most urgent needs, can also be donated to directly.
During the 2019 Parkland Day of Giving, the community raised over $70,000 that went directly to Parkland College and thousands of deserving students. The donations provided:
$45,000 in new scholarships to help over 90 students with tuition, fees, and books
$16,000 to the Creating Impact for Parkland fund
$9,000 to academic programs to enhance instruction across campus
Residents can view the progress of the Day of Giving's goal, and are invited to share personal testimonials on how Parkland College learning support has led to their success, at #ParklandGivingDay.
