ANC Foundation Joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement


The Arthur N. Caple Foundation has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. 

The foundation is calling on NAGDCA members to support the future of financial and retirement planning by donating to the foundation on #GivingTuesday, November 28th. 

The foundation's goal for #GivingTuesday is to raise funds to support its scholarship program. Each year the ANC Foundation Board selects one student as the ANC Scholar, who recieves $5,000 to be used towards their educational expenses. The ANC Scholar, and six other scholarship applicants are also awarded an all-expense paid trip to the NAGDCA Annual Conference where they have the opportunity to interact with, and learn from, public sector retirement plan administrators, and industry partners. 

You don't have to wait until #GivingTuesday to donate. Donate today! All donations go directly to support the future leaders of retirement planning.
