Giving Tuesday is a global day of philanthropy that occurs on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. This year it lands on December 1, 2020.
Social media channels are the primary avenues for giving and providing updates on progress throughout the day. All contributions made on Giving Tuesday benefit The Spartan Fund, which supports all aspects of our students’ experience, including tuition assistance.
The incredible generosity of our community has helped De Smet Jesuit raise over $100,000 on each of the past three Giving Tuesdays. While the goal will be to surpass that amount once again this year, there are also many additional needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. The school has provided an ample amount of resources to ensure a safe in-person learning environment, and many families require additional tuition assistance during these challenging times.
To help boost our support to new heights, a $50,000 matching gift has been put forth by several proud alumni and Spartan families. Each gift made on December 1 will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to that amount.
On behalf of all our students, faculty, and staff, thank you to all who have supported De Smet Jesuit in the past, and will choose to do so again on Giving Tuesday!
