On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.
Anyone, anywhere can get involved in #GivingTuesday and give back in a way that is meaningful to them.
GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
The mission of The First Tee of Benton Harbor is to positively impact the lives of our local youth by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values, and promote future potential through the game of golf. We currently serve 3,000 youth per year from our local communities with a goal to double in five years. Starting at a young age, we focus on academic achievement to help every youth envision and prepare for college.
#GivingTuesday can help us impact more participants and help achieve our goal to double our impact in five years!
