#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
Along with collaborating with #IGiveCatholic, a new platform for Catholic giving, St. Louis will be sharing the message of what makes St. Louis great on our social media channels, Facebook and Instagram. Help us reach our goal for the day by “Liking” and sharing our posts with your friends and followers! The more people we can reach, the more visible our school becomes to those who would like Catholic education for their child, or are looking to make a difference in a Catholic community.  Any donations we receive this day will go towards meeting our Annual Fund goal.

Any questions can be directed to Jessica Chaffee at [email protected].
Thank you! Jessica Chaffee
