On Tuesday, November 28, St. Thomas More High School will join nonprofits across the world participating in GivingTuesday, the global day of giving and generosity. After the tremendous support for our 2021 and 2022 GivingTuesday campaigns, St. Thomas More will again offer donors the opportunity to directly fund items and equipment requested by our educators.
St. Thomas More supporters can visit stmwishlist23.givesmart.com
to view items selected personally by our teachers, coaches, and club moderators. By donating the cost of items from our GivingTuesday Teacher Wish List, supporters will “purchase” this equipment, service, or experience for St. Thomas More students and faculty.
“We asked our educators what they needed to provide their students with a more memorable, impactful educational experience and compiled their requests into the GivingTuesday Teacher Wish List,” St. Thomas More President John Hoch (TM ’87) said. “These requests include not just items and equipment but also student experiences like academic field trips, admission and transportation for Cavalier playoff games, and participation in robotics competitions."
Immediately following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 to celebrate philanthropy and community, harnessing the collective power of individuals, neighborhoods, and organizations to encourage giving and highlight radical generosity worldwide. At least $3.1 billion was raised on GivingTuesday 2022 in the United States alone, with 37 million adults participating by offering gifts of time, voice, skills, goods, and money, as well as countless acts of kindness inspired by the movement.
St. Thomas More has participated in the GivingTuesday movement since 2014. Donors have contributed over $125,000 in total to our GivingTuesday campaigns, including nearly $30,000 in 2022
“GivingTuesday inspires people all around the world to embrace their power to drive progress around the causes they care about, not just on one day but throughout the year,” said Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s CEO and co-founder. “With country and community leaders, millions of organizations, and countless givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world.”
