Preliminary data from #GivingTuesday is in, and reports show the Riverbat community raised more than $9,000 during the 24-hour national day of giving on Tuesday, November 28. All donations benefit ACC Foundation student scholarships.

Twenty percent of the money raised came from ACC employees. ACC District Trustees, Foundation Board members, and the community also donated to the college’s #GivingTuesday campaign.

Donations can still be made through the ACC Foundation web page and the ACC Foundation Facebook page.
