Get Your School Involved In #SaugaGives
Get your school involved in the global giving movement coming back to the City of Mississauga this Tuesday, November 28th, 2017 by choosing a charity to support this GivingTuesday. Whether your school chooses to raise funds, send students to volunteer for the day, host an event, or teach charitable giving in another way on Tuesday, November 28th, 2017 to a cause your school cares about—there are so many ways to get your students giving back this GivingTuesday!
Last year, the team at MississaugaGives saw schools using GivingTuesday as a way to give back and teach their students about the importance of giving. Holy Name of Mary College School sent students to volunteer at various charities across the City of Mississauga and Greater Toronto Area, while Mentor College students purchased slices of pizza at a pizza shop in Port Credit who was donating proceeds to Connect 4 Life.
It’s easy to take part in this year’s MississaugaGives campaign celebrating charitable giving across Mississauga on GivingTuesday. Here’s how:
Find one or more cause(s) your school would like support by checking out the charities MississaugaGives has partnered with. Explore our partnered animal charities, arts and culture charities, environmental charities, health charities, international charities, social service and community charities, and religious charities.
Once you choose one or more charities to support on GivingTuesday, determine how your school would like to give back and support your selected cause(s). Whether your school would like to donate funds, host an event or fundraiser, volunteer, or give in another way, it is up to you! Need ideas? Check out the resources available for schools on the GivingTuesday Canada website including a GivingTuesday toolkit for schools.
Once you have determined how your school will be giving back this GivingTuesday, let the team at MississaugaGives know by contacting us. We can help share your GivingTuesday plans on our website and social media to let the rest of Mississauga know how you will be giving back this Tuesday, November 28th, 2017. Our team can also help put you in touch with our partnered charities.
Leading up to GivingTuesday, make sure to share your GivingTuesday plans and your involvement in the MississaugaGives campaign on your school's online and social media channels by using the hashtag #SaugaGives and #GivingTuesdayCA.
