Giving Tuesday 2017


Giving Tuesday Goal TotalsOn Tuesday, November 28, Harper College is participating in #GivingTuesday. This worldwide day of giving provides an opportunity to give back to the causes that are important to you.

Few institutions have a wider impact on the northwest suburbs than Harper College. Each year, Harper welcomes more than 35,000 students through its doors—each with goals, dreams, hope and a promise to themselves. For many, the Harper experience would not be possible without the private support offered through the Harper College Educational Foundation.

Our goal is for the Harper community to come together and raise $20,000 on #GivingTuesday to invest in our students’ education and future success.

Don't want to wait until Giving Tuesday to donate? Make your donation today. When you donate, you'll have the opportunity to download Harper College's original Giving Tuesday theme song, "Believe."
