Why #givingTuesday?

 

As a reminder that the Holiday Season is about Giving Back, #GivingTuesday was started in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation. On the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, the whole world is encouraged to give. This effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners — charities, families, businesses, and individuals — to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season.


Whats our Goal?

This #GivingTuesday, we want to kick off our goal through the end of the year to collectively raise
enough money to fund 2,500 hours of mentoring. One hour of mentoring only costs $20! ALL online
donations to College Mentors for Kids, including those received on our main website, Facebook, and
through chapter, committee, and board fundraising teams, count toward this goal.
