Giving Tuesday

We give thanks on Thanksgiving. We give back on Giving Tuesday. Join us for a global celebration of generosity, Tuesday, December 2, 2014, as charities, families, businesses, communities and students from around the world come together for the common goal of giving back. When you give to Communities In Schools, you think globally and act locally. Your generous gift will make a difference in a student’s life, inspiring them to make their own incredible contributions to the world.
