How to Fundraise During the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

There’s just something about the holiday season that makes people more generous. People across the country are opening up their wallets and finding causes to support – Giving Tuesday is a great way to bring some holiday cheer into your classroom!

Double your Donations on #GivingTuesday

We’ve been hard at work getting ready to support you during Giving Tuesday on November 28, 2017. Last year we gave out $5,000 in matching donations on Giving Tuesday. That turned out to be so successful that we’re expanding the match to $30,000!

Only on November 28th we’ll be matching donations of up to $50!

In past years, teachers have been tremendously successful raising money on #GivingTuesday. Here a couple simple ways you can raise awareness and stock your classroom:

  1. Email your friends, family and supporters.
    • There’s a good chance that the people in your life are already planning on making a donation on #GivingTuesday. This is a great chance to direct some of that goodwill towards your classroom!
  2. Post on Social Media

Psst! Be sure to check out our Facebook page on Giving Tuesday for an easy way to win some funds for your classroom.

Get the word out however you like – and make sure everyone knows that for one special day, their donation will have double the impact!
