FLC secures 582 donors, raises over $622K during its fifth Giving Tuesday

Fort Lewis College supporters rallied during this year’s Giving Tuesday, inspiring 582 people to donate during the 24-hour event and raising $622,122 in philanthropic support, a 28 percent increase from last year.

FLC’s fifth Giving Tuesday campaign completed 38 challenges and surpassed its goal of engaging at least 550 donors —unlocking a $200,000 gift to the Sports Performance Center.

“We are humbled by the support of our community and so thankful to our donors who reached out to family and friends to support causes they feel strongly about,” said Melissa Mount, vice president of Advancement at FLC and CEO of the FLC Foundation. “We’re particularly excited about the number of FLC staff and faculty who supported causes they care about at FLC and our increase in the number of donors that met the challenge to unlock the generous gift for our sports center.”

The Giving Tuesday movement started in 2012 as a call for people to do good. FLC joined the campaign in 2019 and has consistently engaged several hundred donors and donations during the 24 hours since. Last year, the College raised $484,698 from 511 donors.
