Giving Tuesday 2018 Raises Vital Funds

Posted on Thursday, December 13, 2018

Since 1958, ARCS Foundation (Achievement Rewards for College Scientists Foundation, Inc.) has provided Science, Technology, Engineering and Medical research (STEM) funding for more than 10,000 men and women at top-ranked universities throughout the nation. On November 27, ARCS Foundation participated in #GivingTuesday to raise funds for ARCS Foundation National Operating and Endowment Funds. Thanks to your generosity, contributions are already up over 43% from 2017!

Your outpouring of support will go toward sustaining existing chapters, adding new chapters, and increasing the national visibility of ARCS Foundation and scholars’ achievements. “The generous gifts received on #GivingTuesday help ensure that ARCS Foundation perseveres in funding our country's future science leaders for years to come.” said ARCS National President Andi Purple.

Giving Tuesday is the beginning of ARCS Foundation’s year-end giving campaign, and the start of a new spirit of giving and growing our mission. Those who did not participate in Giving Tuesday are reminded that there is still time to join Giving Tuesday supporters with a gift prior to Dec. 31.
