#GivingTuesday

It's #GivingTuesday! Support Education for Tomorrow Alliance in a Celebration of Giving

Education for Tomorrow Alliance (EfTA) has joined #GivingTuesday, a national day of giving that inspires businesses, families, and individuals to take collaborative action to improve their local communities and to kick off the season of giving. Giving Tuesday is a meaningful counter to two days of shopping frenzy. It encourages individuals to consider what ways their time and energy can benefit others. Giving Tuesday offers a valuable platform for nonprofits like EfTA to raise awareness and to highlight our work in the community. For 26 years, Education for Tomorrow Alliance has served as a business-education partnership to help prepare students for the future because of supporters like you!  

How to participate in #GivingTuesday

  • Make a donation or sign up to volunteer on the EfTA website.
  • Take a photo of yourself with a sign (templates below) saying why you give or how you gave back. Tag it #unselfie and share it online.
  • Use your social media contacts to spread the word about #GivingTuesday and EfTA. 
  • When you do your holiday shopping, use the EfTA AmazonSmile link which will put a percentage of your purchase to work in the community in support of education.

#GivingTuesday is designed to enable nonprofits to harness the power of social media to make giving contagious.  Actions big or small – be it donations, time spent volunteering or beyond – have big impact, and the holiday season is the perfect inspiration. Participants are invited to share the ways they are giving back using the hashtag #GivingTuesday or posting an “unselfie” online.

Here's why they give.  What about you?   

I GIVE BECAUSE...

 "...it matters!"

"...giving is in my DNA."

"...it helps shape the future of the community."

"...EfTA inspires future generations."

"...our kids are THAT important!"

Seeing an opportunity to channel the generous spirit of the holiday season to inspire action around charitable giving, a group led by the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation came together in 2012 to find ways to promote and celebrate the great American tradition of giving. More than 10,000 organizations have joined the movement and are providing creative ways people can embrace #GivingTuesday and collaborate in their giving efforts to create more meaningful results.
