Giving Tuesday. What’s That?
Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday.
Many of you may know what Black Friday and Cyber Monday are, but do you know what Giving Tuesday is? #givingtuesday is a global day of giving thanks that helps shift the focus from receiving on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, to supporting philanthropy on November 28, 2017. The best part is….anyone can get involved!
There are many ways to get involved that will show you are supporting Giving Tuesday!
Here are some ways to get involved:
- Give your voice & time by volunteering at a local nonprofit you love
- Provide pro bono help
- Donate to a charity/organization of your choice
- Post an #UNselfie to show what you’re doing in support Giving Tuesday
- Tell your Giving Story and you will have the chance to win money for your favorite non-profit organization
OR find out what’s happening near you and see how you could get involved locally!
How does MathCON fit in, and why are we telling you all of this? Well, as a non-profit organization there are many projects we would like to jump-start, but we need your help to do it!
Every year we host a our Finals Competition in Chicago, IL. The catch is that we have students who advance from states outside of the Midwest and not every student may have the money to travel to the on-site location. SO, we would like to start a scholarship fund to provide the monetary means for students who need help getting to the Finals Competition.
Last year 576 students of the 50,000 participants advanced to finals. If you would like to help students who advance from the Online Regional Competition to the Chicago-based Finals Competition, donate to MathCON for Giving Tuesday!
