The fifth annual Give to CSS Day is on Thursday, and the theme of giving is spreading throughout the college.
"We're trying to create a culture of giving at the college," Vice President of College Advancement John Labosky said.
In the theme of giving, the date of the event was picked for a very precise reason.
"We picked March 23rd because that's the day in the September-May school year that classes would have to end if we didn't have philanthropy," Labosky said.
The College of St. Scholastica recently went through philanthropy week, where college students went out in the community and helped with projects.
As for a goal for the campaign, the school is hoping to top it's total of $100,000 made through last year's event.
Money from the campaign will go toward scholarships for students, support for faculty and instruction, the college's IT department, education programs and other areas. The goal is to help make college more accessible.
"The impact of the campaign is doubled by a pool of matching money that St. Scholastica has secured from generous donors," Labosky said.
