Franklin College will host its fifth annual Day of Giving Challenge today.
The money raised will go to the Franklin Fund, which provides tuition assistance for Franklin College students who qualify, as well as other expenses. Ninety-five percent of the college’s students receive some form of financial aid.
This year, the college goal is raise funds from 600 people on April 20. Meeting this number will “unlock” more than $25,000 from the college’s challengers, who have pledged money toward the challenge goals for this specific day.
Each year the college has met and exceeded its goal. Last year the college raised $80,107 from 567 donors.
Those interested in donating should contact Emily Trinkle, interim director of annual giving, at 317-738-8049 or etrinkle@FranklinCollege.edu.
