    #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on November 27th and will kick off the giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.


    The Mountain View Chamber of Commerce Foundation (MVCoCF) provides educational programs for the community. One of those programs is student scholarships. We’ve been offering scholarships since 2009 through the Scholarship Mountain View program.

     

    Every day, residents of Mountain View are surrounded by high rise luxury-living, high-end cars, wealth and opportunity. We’re often mentioned in lists of the best places to live, and also the most expensive, but there is still a tremendous financial need in our community. Multiple incomes and jobs are needed just to survive.
     

    “Over 20% of our local students are in the free-lunch program. One young girl cleans houses of her classmates, alongside her mother, in order to help pay the rent. We’ve heard some heartbreaking stories about Mountain View families struggling to stay afloat, but not wanting to leave the area, because they know that this is where the best schools are located.”

    We are fortunate and grateful to be in a community where multiple organizations work together to support students in need. During this time of giving, we urge you to make a donation to help raise funds for our local students who need financial assistance. 

    #GivingTuesday is more than a day of giving, it’s giving hope to local students who want to achieve their higher education dreams.
