On Nov. 27, 2018, United Methodists are invited to extend the spirit of giving thanks into the Advent season as they #GiveUMC on #GivingTuesday. This is an opportunity to advance ministry around the world by participating in this special day of giving!
Last year on #GivingTuesday, United Methodists collectively raised more than $677,000 online through The Advance. As always, when you give through The Advance, 100% of your gift directly supports the ministry you designate. Harris Memorial College received US$ 32,544.74 during the whole year of 2017. It was used in providing scholarship, food subsidy, discounts on tuition and piano fees, and merit/academic scholarship for student deaconesses. It was also used for scholarship for graduate studies and financial assistance for continuing professional development of faculty, teachers, staff, and school administrators.
Please consider supporting #GivingTuesday/Project 00519B: Leadership Development Program for Harris Memorial College by participating in the upcoming #GiveUMC fundraising efforts or by giving an online donation on November 27 at UMCmission.org/giving-tuesday.

The program aims to support the faculty members, teachers, and staff who pursue graduate studies based on the priority needs of the school, and to provide scholarship assistance to needy but deserving student deaconesses within the period of three years (2017-2020). This is very much needed to meet the needs of the college for academically qualified faculty members in the different identified/priority disciplines and to assist student deaconesses with their financial needs while studying in Harris Memorial College.
