Blue Water College Access Network
#GivingTuesday is November 29!
Black Friday. Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday. Since its inception in 2008, over 30,000 local students have benefited from BWCAN (formerly KH2GO) and we want to double that impact through your donations on #GivingTuesday! This Tuesday, Nov. 29, the Community Foundation of St. Clair County will double your donation to the College Access Endowment Fund! Help us continue to provide over 40 programs per year, college advisers in local high schools, professional development opportunities, scholarships and the most up-to-date information about post-secondary education. We want to ensure every student in St. Clair County has a plan for life after high school.
Won't you help us reach our goal of getting more students to college?
To donate, go to the Community Foundation website.
About the Blue Water College Access Network: Established in 2008 as KnowHow2GO, the BWCAN is St. Clair County's Local College Access Network. Comprised of community leaders, including the Community Foundation of St. Clair County, we are committed to building a college-going culture and dramatically increasing college readiness, participation, and completion rates within our community. Collectively, we have helped over 30,000 local students find their path to post-secondary education, and increased the number of students attending college after high school.
About #GivingTuesday: Occurring this year on November 29, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanskgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support. #GivingTuesday celebrates generosity by providing people everywhere with an opportunity to give more, give smarter, and give great.
