CANTON, Mo. — Culver-Stockton College’s annual scholarship donor event, “24 Hours of Giving,” begins at noon on Thursday, March 16, and continues until noon on Friday, March 17.

The 24-hour giving campaign, done primarily on social media, aims to raise $170,000 for the Student Scholarship Fund, which includes a $50,000 match from an anonymous donor. Money will be raised through donor gifts and dining events leading to the 24-hour giving campaign.

The college has partnered with alumni business owners for the third year in a row to raise awareness about the importance of the SSF. Patrons who dine on Thursday, March 16, at Primo’s in Canton, LaBinnah Bistro in Hannibal and Tiramisu in Quincy, Ill., will help C-SC students. A portion of sales from those restaurants that day will be donated to the Student Scholarship Fund.

Customers who buy a drink from Electric Fountain Brewing Coffee Bar in Quincy or Hebrews XI Coffee in Taylor or Palmyra through March 13-17 will receive a special sticker on their cups. When scanned, they will be invited to make a gift to the Student Scholarship Fund and be entered into a drawing for prizes, including gift cards, coffee, and C-SC promotional items. 

More than 90 percent of students at Culver-Stockton College receive a scholarship to offset their tuition.

In a press release, Adam Duesterhaus, vice president for advancement, said, “We are inviting people to connect during dining and on social media, tell their story and invest in the next generation of Wildcats.”

Supporters can learn more about the events and follow along with the C-SC Wildcat stories on the college’s Facebook page at facebook.com/csconthehill. For more information, contact Duesterhaus at aduesterhaus@culver.edu.
