Tartan Tuesday 2017
1 day. 24 hours. 1,440 minutes.
Tartan Tuesday 2017 is Maryville College’s college-wide 24 hour day of giving. On April 04, 2017, between 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM, EST, members of the MC community can join together and show just how much they care about Maryville College by making donations to the Maryville Fund, the College’s top annual giving priority.
To make things more fun and kick off some friendly Fighting Scots competition between our eight Academic Divisions, all donors who make a gift of any size on Tartan Tuesday can participate in the Tartan Tuesday Academic Division Challenge. The Academic Divisions will compete for the honor of highest giving participation on Tartan Tuesday. Participants will be able to monitor results hourly using the leaderboard below under Challenges & Leaderboards.
