Participate in "Giving Tuesday" to Support the Schoolcraft College Foundation
Everyone has heard of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. Now there is a growing global movement, #Giving Tuesday, to transform how people participate in the holiday giving season. On #Giving Tuesday, November 29, 2016 Schoolcraft College students, faculty, staff, alumni and supporters of Schoolcraft College are being encouraged to spread the word about #Giving Tuesday and encourage giving to the Schoolcraft College Foundation (SCF) this holiday season.
What is #GivingTuesday all about?
#Giving Tuesday is a global movement to transform how people participate in the holiday giving season. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday and Cyber Monday, nonprofit organizations like SCF want millions of people to come together and demonstrate their commitment to helping others on #GivingTuesday, November 29. The simple idea behind #GivingTuesday is to encourage people, and businesses to donate to help a good cause. All donations are tax deductible.
Where is it Happening?
Everywhere! #GivingTuesday is a growing global movement now spanning five continents. But while the movement has a global reach, the true magic is its local appeal. The heart of #GivingTuesday is about the power of individual action. Wherever someone donates their time, ideas or money #GivingTuesday can happen there, too.
Why is it important?
Non- profit organizations like SCF do a great deal of good in the world and this day allows for people to support that important work and celebrate the impact they make. #GivingTuesday follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday and after spending a lot of money on getting things this is a great way to give back to a cause close to your heart.
