2018 marks the 10th year of Givology! Truly, the students scholarships, library and computer lab renovations, teacher training, empowerment programs, among many more education projects that we’ve done over the last 10 years wouldn’t be possible with YOU our supporters and our volunteers.
During this holiday season and reflecting back on how education has changed our lives, we all have so much to be grateful for. Think of a teacher who transformed the way you think, the networks that you have created through your schools, and the career opportunities that opened as a result of your education. Now we have a chance to pay it forward by supporting education projects and student scholarships globally through Givology’s network of high-impact grassroots partners.
To celebrate 10 years of Givology, we have 10 days of activities starting from Thanksgiving and spanning to December 1st. Here’s an outline of events.

It’s our day of positivity! We’ll be sharing inspiring quotes and stories from thought leaders in education who we admire greatly. For each ‘share’ of our posts, a board member has pledged to donate 10 cents. We’ll tally the final amount and let everyone know the final amount raised!
[b]November 27, 2018 (Day 6) - #givingtuesday and 100% matching [/b]
Giving Tuesday was started in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation, and has since become a nation-wide movement. For our #givingTuesday campaign, we’re matching donations 100% on Givology and asking donors to share their reflections of giving back on social media. For anyone who shares, we’ll send a $5 gift card.
[b]November 28, 2018 (Day 7) - Featuring Chapters and In-Kind Technology Donations [/b]
Our chapters are critical to the work that we do in the community. We’ll feature stories from our chapters and encourage supporters to start their own Givology chapters.
