After Black Friday there's Cyber Monday, and now... #GIVINGTUESDAY! On Tuesday, November 27, 2018, the BGCGW is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. Last year, more than 45,000 organizations in 71 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday, and since its founding in 2012, this day has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.
As a final fundraising push for 2018, the Next Generation's Leaders Board (NGL) is sponsoring a happy hour fundraiser for #GivingTuesday, on November 27, 2018 from 5pm-9pm, at Half Smoke located at 651 Florida Avenue NW, Washington DC. Can't make it? Outside of the DC metro? Think checks are archaic? No problem- You can simply donate online right here.
Reminder: NGL and the funds we raise support the kids only! The money raised goes directly to a list of needs we have received from the directors at each of the four clubs (e.g. food for the kids after school, seating, awards for quarterly achievements). We are not compensated and we DO NOT provide funding to the larger organization to support salaries, fringe, or any other benefits at that level.
