#GivingTuesday is November 29 and the Mt. Vernon Education Foundation (MVEF) offers a tax-exempt reason to make a gift that will impact the education at Mt. Vernon Schools. Providing over $200,000 in teacher-requested grants since 2008, MVEF enriches the educational experience of students in our community.
"#GivingTuesday" is a movement started in recent years as a response to the commercialization and consumerism of the post-Thanksgiving shopping bonanza, beginning with Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Everybody loves a bargain, but with so much attention focused on buying, it’s hard to remember the spirit of giving that's at the heart of the holiday season.
In the spirit of giving, the Mt. Vernon Education Foundation (MVEF) is about to launch its very first #GivingTuesday campaign. They have set a goal of $3,000 for this inaugural event! Just before Thanksgiving, they reached $1,000 towards the #GivingTuesday campaign! Can you help them achieve their goal?
