SUNY Broome's annual 24 Hours of Giving is scheduled for next week.

The ninth annual event will take place on Tuesday, November 28th, which is also known as Giving Tuesday. Nearly $60,000 have been pledged by the Board of the SUNY Broome Foundation and the Board of Trustees to challenge those associated with the university and local businesses to support SUNY Broome.

The goal of Giving Day is to raise awareness of the needs of the campus and students and encourage donors to continue to support SUNY Broome. The hope is to have 300 donors participate and raise as much as last year or more.

Last year, $285,000 was raised.
