Illinois Valley schools promote Giving Tuesday

Posted by wlpo on November 28, 2016

You ate on Thanksgiving, shopped on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday so now its time to donate on Giving Tuesday.

The “Global Day of Giving” is seen as a way to kick off the charitable season after so much emphasis on spending money. In the Illinois Valley both St. Bede Academy and Marquette Academy has been promoting Giving Tuesday seeking donations through social media. Marquette is hoping to raise enough money to replace the sound system in Bader Gym. Donations at St. Bede will go towards things like offsetting tuition costs.

Thanks to matching donations, St. Bede’s Giving Tuesday in 2015 brought in more than $60,000.
