What is #GivingTuesday

De Smet Jesuit High School joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement & pledges to make a difference in the lives of their students with your help

De Smet Jesuit High School has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on November 29, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

De Smet Jesuit seeks to Inspire & Prepare Men for & with Others to Transform the World (AMDG). This is something that can not be done only by our faculty & staff, but we need everyone in the De Smet Jesuit Family to help accomplish this. #GivingTuesday is an opportunity for everyone in our family to Empower our Spartans to Transform the World by making a donation to De Smet Jesuit that will go directly to helping fulfill the needs of our community to achieve this mission.
