Donors Again Show Their Generosity on Giving Tuesday

December 2, 2016

The spirit of giving keeps growing at Albion College.

On Tuesday, November 29, 333 donors generously gave $113,057.53 to Albion as part of international giving day. It’s the fourth straight year the College has taken part in the event and the fourth straight year donors have surpassed the previous year’s total.

In 2015, 292 donors gave more than $107,000 and that total was 15% higher than the year before that and which was double the first-year total in 2013.

“Thank you to our 333 alumni, faculty and friends of the College who celebrated Giving Tuesday by donating more than $113,000 to Albion College,” said Sonny Gast, the College’s senior engagement officer and coordinator of Giving Tuesday. “We appreciate the generous hearts of our donors and the 11 alumni Giving Tuesday Champions nationwide who encouraged others to take action and support Albion financially.”

Albion College changes lives, and our graduates go on to change the world. Donor support plays a crucial role in that successful formula—find out more at And again, thank you!
