Let the countdown to #GivingTuesday begin! Please mark Tuesday, December 1st on your calendar right now and get ready to join alumni, parents, and friends around the world in supporting Madison House.
What is #GivingTuesday, you ask? #GivingTuesday is a national day dedicated to giving back following Thanksgiving and those other days for getting deals.
Madison House will have a special challenge on #GivingTuesday: we need to raise $10,000 from supporters like YOU to secure a matching gift of $10,000 from a pair of donors who wish to remain anonymous. Thanks to the generosity of these anonymous donors, your donation to Madison House on #GivingTuesday will have twice the impact.
Last year, like every year, U.Va. student leaders proudly carried on the Madison House traditions of leadership, service, and community. During the 2014-2015 academic year, 3,179 University of Virginia students volunteered 111,135 service hours at 168 community partner sites throughout the Charlottesville-Albemarle region. This year, we are working hard to increase leadership opportunities and training as well as foster new partnerships in the community and at the University.
Save the date and help us continue to make the volunteer experience for thousands of 'Hoos even better on #GivingTuesday!
