The College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (EMS) will be raising money to support the Millennium Scholars Program on GivingTuesday, slated to begin at 6:55 p.m. Monday, Nov. 29, and lasting through 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 30. Early fundraising is already underway.
The college seeks to raise $10,000, which will help fund one Millennium Scholar in the 2022-23 academic year. Fundraising efforts will include help from the college’s “Champions” on social media. This year’s campaign will include games such as “social media tag,” where donors can call on others to participate and “50 States to 10K,” which seeks gifts in the name of all 50 states. For the third year in a row, Tony Hutchinson, who graduated in 1990 in geography, is matching contributions 1:1 up to $5,000. Two additional 1:1 gift match opportunities — one for Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) donors and one for new donors to Penn State — can potentially increase a $25 gift to $100.
