Giving Tuesday Is An International Movement Created To Celebrate Charitable Giving And Generosity During The Holiday Season.
Started in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y and the United National Foundation in New York City, Giving Tuesday has raised hundreds of millions of dollars by thousands of charities in over 70 countries – 34.8 million people participated in GivingTuesday 2020, raising an estimated $2.47 billion in 24 hours. Always held the Tuesday following U.S. Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday is a reminder to give back during the holiday season – whether that’s charitable giving, volunteering, or being a voice in your community.
This Giving Tuesday we are asking the Keystone community to help support the Daniel Wesley Stevens Memorial Endowed Fund for Teacher Support.
Danny Stevens was a beloved member of the Keystone Class of 2000 who passed away in 2003 following a hiking accident.
The Daniel Wesley Stevens Memorial Endowed Fund for Teacher Support directly benefits the people who propel our school’s mission – our teachers. This fund helps our faculty in their pursuits to continue to learn and grow in the subject they teach and are passionate about. Already, the fund has helped provide professional development opportunities, continuing education, and more.
This year, we are hoping to get our teachers back to in-person professional development opportunities. Funding these opportunities includes cost of registration, travel, lodgings, and more. It is with your contributions that we are able to support our teachers while they advance their knowledge on how best to further our students’ education.
Your support makes it possible for Keystone to stay ahead of educational developments and pursue an educational mission that values small classes; excellence in teaching; creative, experiential learning; and diversity of backgrounds.
Thanks to the help of devoted supporters, Keystone has stayed in the forefront of American education since 1948. With your help, we will continue preparing students to excel in a changing world for the next 70 years and beyond.
