Support AGC on #GivingTuesday Next Week

22 Nov

Tis’ the giving season! This is a time to give thanks and gifts, but it is also the time when most Americans make charitable donations. More than 80% of Americans do some charitable giving and the average annual household contribution in 2015 was $2,900. Approximately $1,000 of those gifts were made between Thanksgiving and New Years.

Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday on November 29 is a celebration of giving back. Last year, generous citizens donated $100M to causes around the world on Giving Tuesday, with an average contribution of $100.

For the students, families, and educators at the Academy for Global Citizenship, this is a critical time, as we work to recover after the largest funding cut in our history during the recent district budget crisis. AGC must raise $1,000 per student to close this gap.

Here are a few ways you can support AGC this Giving Tuesday, regardless of your budget. Remember, all of your gifts to AGC are tax-deductible! 

  • Give Stock: Donating stock or securities will allow you to earn the full tax benefits of the value of your shares and avoid capital gains taxes. Contact us to learn more.
  • Give Time: Tell the world about AGC by sharing posts from our blog, Facebook or Twitter feeds throughout the giving season.
