We are excited to announce that Whitney Young will again participate in Giving Tuesday a global day dedicated to giving back. On this day, people around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
At Whitney Young, Giving Tuesday is an incredible one-time opportunity to maximize your gift because EVERY dollar donated to Whitney Young on this day will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $25,000.
Occurring this year on November 29, Giving Tuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to kick-off the holiday giving season and to promote giving back in impactful ways.
Hear first hand from Whitney Young Senior
Last year we raised $70,000 on Giving Tuesday! Our goal this year is to raise $100,000. You will be able to designate your tax-deductible gift to one of three special projects — an electronic sign on campus which will display announcements about Whitney Young activities and achievements, window shades which will replace old, worn, stained and missing curtains in every classroom on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Academic Building, or the Annual Fund which supports many programs and academics not funded by CPS.
Giving Tuesday is in one week! Look for more information next Tuesday about how you can give and have your donation matched on Giving Tuesday.
