Rally & Raise Day

Aug. 29, 1966 marked the first day of classes at Seminole State College of Florida (then Seminole Junior College).  In celebration of this special day, the Foundation launched "Rally & Raise Day" in 2018.  This giving day aims to showcase our College pride and giving spirit.

Rally and Raise Giving Day is a day in support of Seminole State College.  On Aug. 29, we encourage you to Rally and show your Seminole State spirit!  For 2020, Rally and Raise Giving Day will kick off a week-long campaign to Rally around the College.

Your support always matters to Seminole State, but on this day, your participation can go even further!  When many people come together in support, the collective impact is HUGE!  Additionally, with challenges, there's a chance to unlock additional support for a program or scholarship that you love.

EVERYBODY! Students, friends, alumni, faculty, staff and family are all encouraged to participate!

Make your gift online, visit campus during Rally & Raise Day Celebrations, and show your spirit on social media.
