Give the gift of education this #GivingTuesday

On Tuesday, November 29, 2016, communities, organizations, businesses, families and students across the globe will come together for one common goal: to encourage giving!

In the U.S., #GivingTuesday is held on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the biggest shopping days, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday marks the official start of both the holiday shopping and end-of-year charitable giving seasons.

Make a difference in the lives of promising students. Your contribution to Florida Poly supports student scholarships and the University’s innovative mission.

Scholarships play a key role in ensuring that Florida Poly graduates the next generation of high-technology leaders who can propel our economy into a future of opportunity and job growth.

Celebrate the power of giving on 11.29.16
