"For it is in giving that we receive" -- St. Francis of Assisi
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two days for getting deals (Black Friday and Cyber Monday). Now, we have GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It's a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. With this in mind, we hope you will join us on this day in support of St. Francis Prep and the nearly 2500 wonderful young students who come from all walks of life and are truly fortunate to be in a position to receive an outstanding Catholic education rooted in the Franciscan tradition.
We are hopeful that many of our alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends will participate in Prep's GivingTuesday.
Any gift, regardless of the amount, will earn you the famous SFP Terrier pin to wear proudly. And, all donors will be recognized within e-mail blast messages to be sent throughout the day and immediately after GivingTuesday, as well as on our alumni website homepage. And who knows, we may find that a Prep graduate or two (or three) will throw out a challenge to his or her classmates for the day (which we will communicate immediately of course so keep an eye out for updates on GivingTuesday).
We will be setting up a special SFP GivingTuesday web page for that day. The link to this page will be emailed to you on GivingTuesday when the page goes live.
Thank you in advance for your support! We look forward to a great GivingTuesday on December 1. (Don’t forget, GivingTuesday runs from 12:01 AM to 11:59 PM on that day.)
On for Ol’ St. Francis!
