ATHENS, W.Va.  – Concord University alumni, donors and friends are encouraged to remember the Concord University Foundation, Inc. with a contribution on Giving Tuesday, which is being held on Nov. 29 this year. This annual day of philanthropy celebrated globally is marking its fifth year in 2016.

The Foundation’s emphasis on Giving Tuesday is a part of the organization’s end of year giving with gifts going directly to the annual fund (unrestricted fund) for funding campus projects and other important needs.

“Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for Concord alumni to participate in a global effort that celebrates generosity,” said Alicia Besenyei, Vice President for Advancement. “As we think about giving back during this charitable season, we hope the Mountain Lion family will contribute to the Concord Annual Fund, knowing their money will make a tremendous impact on our students.

Donations may be made online by going to:
