What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a movement, built by people around the world that brings communities together to support nonprofit organizations. This year it falls on Tuesday, November 29th, following two days of consumerism for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday will inspire people to take action to improve their communities and give back in better, smarter ways to the organizations they love and help create a better world.
We hope that you will consider making DeSales Catholic School part of your #GivingTuesday!
How will DeSales use my #GivingTuesday donation?
All donations received through the #GivingTuesday Campaign will be used to buy new Bibles for our Mr. Paul Schuster's Middle School Religion Classes. The Bibles our students are currently using are over 15 years old. We have estimated that in that 15 years, over 600 DeSales students have grown in Faith with those Bibles. As you can imagine the wear and tear is really starting to show (missing pages, torn covers etc). Each new Bible is $36, we need 35 new Bibles for our Middle School. The fundraising goal for #GivingTuesday is $1,260. Any funds raised beyond that will go toward the purchase of new classroom Bibles for preschool through Grade 5.
Can I make a donation in Honor or Memory of a loved one?
Yes. If you would like to donate in memory or in honor of a loved one just indicate that in the notes section of the donation form. If you donate $36, a dedication label will be placed in the Bible. We will also send a note to your loved ones friends or family letting them know of the gift in their honor.
