About

The second annual #GRIZTuesday campaign respectfully asks that you consider helping our athletic teams to secure fundraising dollars to aid in their efforts to procure important equipment and resources, recruit new members, fund critical training trips, and preserve the legacy of Franklin College Athletics. By taking action today, you directly help enhance the current student-athlete experience and ensure meaningful future experiences. Every dollar (100%) raised from this campaign will go directly to support our student-athletes.

Hit the overall goal, but several teams still need your support!

Incredible, Grizzly family! We are over the moon with happiness for your generosity. While we have met the overall $100,000 goal for #GRIZTuesday, several teams could still use your support. Let's not leave anyone behind - let's pull together and see this thing through! 

THANKS AGAIN! HIGH FIVES!

Go Griz!

It's nearly 3pm

Sometimes 3pm brings with it the "afternoon slump." But, not for FC Grizzlies! Stand up, take a brisk walk, do some jumping jacks and high five your neighbor because we are 65% to goal thanks to your loyalty! 

Have you already given? Encourage your friends to join you and give on #GRIZTuesday!

#GRIZTuesday is open!

Wow, the year has really flown by!

Just last fall our Grizzly athletic teams weren't playing college sports and we really didn't know the future. We had Giving Tuesday, which we dubbed #GRIZTuesday, and you responded in a tremendous way. You helped give our student-athletes the opportunity to compete this spring.

Twenty-one sports have or will be playing this year and we welcome spectators back to campus. It's also a very exciting time for Franklin College, as we continue to move forward despite the pandemic. We've added esports, our newest team to campus, with 26 student-athletes already on that team.

This #GivingTuesday, please consider making a gift to support FC Athletics and help us reach our goal to raise $100,000 in 24 hours. Whether you choose to give to General Athletics, or direct your gift to your favorite team or group, you can watch the leaderboard light up in real time. 

Right now, during #GRIZTuesday, your Grizzlies need your support! Every dollar raised from this campaign will go directly to support our student-athletes. We look forward to seeing you once again on the sidelines cheering on your favorites. Thank you!

Let’s show our support and our competitive spirit! Go Griz!
