Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past ten years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
This is Central's third year participating in Giving Tuesday. In 2019, the alumni and friends of the college raised several thousand dollars to install a disc golf course and a hammock farm on campus. In 2020, we raised over $10,000 to help refurbish the Mingenback Hall lobby to give students another study space option. In light of COVID-19, these projects have had a larger impact than we were even expecting, creating additional opportunities for students to be together, active, and socially distanced. 2021, hosted impressive updates to classrooms, campus and event signage, and an immense facelift for Greer Auditorium,
In the last year, through donations through Giving Tuesday, additional donors, and College operations funds Greer Auditorium has seen improvements in nearly every aspect of the space. New paint, light fixtures, carpet in the tech booth, installed communication options between the tech booth and the stage, as well as a completely upgraded lighting system on stage - which replaced the original system installed in 1987.
This Giving Tuesday, we are working on completing the comprehensive work done in Greer Auditorium over the last several years by installing a fully functional live streaming set that will enable all events in the space to be streamed at a high quality in real time.
In order to accomplish this, it requires the sound system to be replaced and updated to current standards, numerous pieces of new equipment, and cables run throughout the space, enabling a multi-camera system to be installed.
