(BEAVER FALLS, Pa.)  Geneva College asks alumni, friends and members of the community to respond to the #GivingTuesdayNow Day of Global Action on May 5, 2020 as they are able, by giving to its COVID-19 Project Fund.

  • Additional expenses in delivering online instruction;
  • Preservation of core functions of college personnel to the greatest extent practical;
  • Offset of college-funded scholarships to provide budget relief;
  • Revenue losses from lower tuition revenue;
