What is Giving Tuesday?This year's Giving Tuesday will be November 28, 2023. Giving Tuesday is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the US. It is touted as a global generosity movement. Unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea; a day that encourages people to do good.
I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver. Maya Angelou
Help us to celebrate and support our remarkable school as we participate in the global day of philanthropy, Giving Tuesday. This is the biggest fundraising day of the year for our school and directly supports the CCS Annual Fund. Like most independent schools there is a deficit between tuition and operating costs. The CCS Annual Fund helps to bridge that gap to ensure that our incredible teachers receive continuing education opportunities, that our technology is keeping up with the times, that our facilities are cared for and that our students have the supplies they need to support their education.
The Annual Fund is Charleston Collegiate’s most important fundraising effort.
The Annual Fund is like a checking account for our annual operating budget that helps our school accomplish our goals by providing essentials such as:
- faculty salaries
- benefits and professional development
- technology and supplies
- athletic equipment
- financial aid
- facility updates and maintenance
- field trips
- guest speakers
- art and drama productions
- general operating expenses
