Giving Tuesday

Join the Giving Tuesday global generosity movement! On December 1, let's make history once again, with our second annual Giving Tuesday broadcast. REGISTER and EXPLORE here!


Tue, December 01, 2020





This year’s Giving Tuesday event has the chance to boldly create something we’ve never done before. All dollars raised in December will seed an endowment fund that will use earnings to perpetually contribute to future operational costs.


We’re also announcing the 20/20 Monthly Donor Challenge! Our goal before the end of 2020: 20 new monthly donors supporting at $20 (or more) AND 20 new monthly donors supporting at $200 (or more).

Join the Circle of Support Now:

This is our way of providing for the future, to ensure we can take care of our families and the school, of having a plan when we face hard times, knowing we can face them together! Join us on December 1 as we hear inspiring stories from guests of turning hardships into hope!
