On Tuesday, November 29, LEAD Academy will be participating in GivingTuesday. Our goal is to have community donors give towards our Capital Campaign, whether it’s $5 or $500!
Created in 2012, GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that focuses on contributing toward building a better world to live in. Every year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, individuals and organizations are encouraged to give back to their community via their time and donations. This year, LEAD Academy invites Montgomery community members and organizations to invest in the future of our city by investing in our children!
At LEAD Academy, we agree with Nelson Mandela when he said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” This is why we provide scholars and their parents with the option for rigorous educational opportunities within the public school sector without the added expense of private school tuition. However, in order to provide these opportunities, funding is needed. In collaboration with our community, LEAD Academy is seeking funding for our school to continue growing while offering a high-quality education for children in Montgomery.
There are multiple ways that you can participate in GivingTuesday with LEAD Academy. First, you can act as one of our amazing donors! Donations can be made via our Facebook page on November 29th or through our Capital Campaign website at campaign.leadacademyal.org at any time.
Second, you can invite friends and family to participate with you! Share on social media or around your office why you’ve chosen to support LEAD Academy. Then, invite them to join you in giving back to our community by investing in our children.
Finally, if you operate a local business or organization, consider leading the way in showing generosity by committing to match others’ donations up to a dollar amount of your choosing! Could your company match up to $50, $100, or maybe even $500? If this is something you are interested in, let us know ahead of time so we can promote you as a GivingTuesday partner.
On November 29th, LEAD Academy invites our community to join us in our mission to build a Montgomery where every child is given the tools they need to be knowledgeable, productive, and well-rounded citizens and to lead themselves and our community well! Make plans to be a part of GivingTuesday’s global generosity movement!
