A global generosity movement.



We are proud to take part in Giving Tuesday on November 30, a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of radical generosity to transform communities and the world. It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

Together, we can help transform OUR community through the power of education. Study after study shows that a good educational foundation is one of the clearest indicators of life outcomes, such as employment, income, and well-being. Be part of a force for good, right here in the community that you care about.

The need is simple. New Haven Schools Foundation has been hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic over the past two years. Our programs are important and usually supported by our fundraising events. Many of our events have been canceled and our operating funds have dwindled because of this. Your donation on Giving Tuesday will offset the costs of providing scholarships to students and support for innovative programs in our schools. Please help us keep the wheels on the bus.

It’s a simple idea:  whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give.
