Subject: Support students by donating to #PCCBigGiveDay!

Dear _______,

On October 5 – October 6, Portland Community College will celebrate its third annual #PCCBigGiveDay. We need our community to come together to support the students who call PCC home. If you believe in our PCC students, I hope you’ll consider making a gift today. Visit www.pcc.edu/biggiveday and help us reach our goal of raising $100,000. Your gift, no matter the size, will make a difference in the lives of PCC students. 

This year we have two generous matches:

  • The Schlesinger Family Foundation will match the first $21,000 in donations to the Big Give Day campaign.
  • Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund will be matching the gifts of the first 60 supporters who contribute $500 or more, making your gift even more impactful. Your gift and the additional $500 match will go directly to the scholarship or participating program of your choice.

I hope you will join me and make your gift from noon on October 5 to midnight on October 6. These gifts will go towards making a BIG difference in the lives of PCC students!

Show your PCC pride and make a gift on #PCCBigGiveDay. Visit pcc.edu/biggiveday to learn more!
