Giving Tuesday

SAVE THE DATE: Tuesday, December 3, 2019

#GivingTuesday was started in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation as a reminder that the holiday season is about giving and giving back. 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.

This year, our goal was to collectively raise enough money to support 100 mentor-little buddy pairs for a year of mentoring activities. ALL online donations for College Mentors for Kids on Tuesday, November 27th will help us meet our goal.

Thanks to our generous donors – Social Legends, NextGear Capital, and the Mike and Sue Smith Family Fund – all online gifts made on November 27 will be matched up to $6,000!




Additionally, we are grateful to the Mary E. Ober Foundation, which is offering an additional match of 50¢ for every $1 given or raised by College Mentors alumni, up to $6,000!
