Hostos Community College is ringing in the 2016 giving season by participating in the international #GivingTuesday fundraising movement.

With the goal of raising more than $7,000 for the Hostos’ Bridge Tuition Student Assistance (BTSA) Fund, a hardship-based fund that assists students close to graduation who are unable to make tuition payments due to unexpected circumstances, Hostos is committed to its most valuable investment, the student.

This special campaign will culminate on Tuesday, November 29th with a unique celebration in the A-atrium from 11am-7pm, where Hostos students, faculty and staff will showcase their talents throughout the day.

Join in the celebration on the 29th and help out by giving back – every little bit counts.  Click here to donate.
