Get into the spirit of generosity this holiday season and join us for #CHAgives on December 1st, our city’s first year participating in the global giving event, #GivingTuesday! UnifiEd is excited to be apart of this philanthropic global movement celebrating generosity and community service. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has partnered with 68 countries to raised over 87.2 million dollars for nonprofits, community initiatives, organizations, and more.
On the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is a day for charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world to come together to give through social media and collaboration. It is a day that connects communities and encourages individuals to take action, empower those around them, and create lasting, positive change.
Causeway and United Way of Greater Chattanooga have partnered to promote #GivingTuesday in Chattanooga for the first time through their #Chagives campaign. Everyone in our city is encouraged to donate to local charities, nonprofits, organizations, and other social causes to make our city the best it can be. Chattanooga has set a goal of reaching 30,000 volunteers and donors to give to local efforts.
UnifiEd is asking for your help on December 1st! By donating to our cause, you are supporting our work in making education the best it can be in Hamilton County. Every great city needs citizens who are knowledgeable, innovative, and engaged, and an education system that supports the success of its people.
UnifiEd is a community led movement of parents, students, teachers, and citizens who want every child to have the chance to attend great public schools. Over the past year we have launched a student voice team, a teacher fellowship program, and our Pact for Public Education which has engaged thousands of Hamilton County residents to form a strong coalition dedicated to public education advocacy work. Please donate here to help ensure every child in Hamilton County has a brilliant future.
