Each year, Giving Tuesday kicks off the international holiday and end-of-year charitable season on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. In 2019, that Tuesday falls on December 3. Tomorrow, that is. Typepad - our website's blogging platform - will announce our nonprofit charitable organization in a social media blast associated with Giving Tuesday.
This is our first time participating in Giving Tuesday. From 12:01 AM to 11:59 PM on Tuesday, December 3, 2019, everyone is invited to donate generously to the GCAS to support the educational programs, library, and general funding we provide in furtherance of our mission of preservation and protection of our region's historic, cultural, and archaeological resources.
Our donors have supported our education fund, helping us continue our educational programs for elementary-through-secondary-school students. Other donors helped us support education at the graduate and postgraduate levels with our inaugural academic year of the GCAS Nancy Coinman Grant Awards. Over 18 donors generously supported our GCAS Library with in-kind donations of high quality archaeological and scientific volumes, as well as basic office supplies. We are so grateful for all this support from so many people in our community.
Every contribution you make to the GCAS benefits local students, graduate scholars pursuing research within our region, and the general public. We want to continue our momentum. We put every donor's dollar to where it is needed the most.
