5 things to know about #givingtuesday2017

  • 1. it's big!

    It’s the largest CLS Fundraiser of the Year—entirely online on Tuesday, Nov. 28!  We’re aiming to raise $50,000 in one day. We need 100% participation to reach this goal. Watch the 24-hour progress bar rise all day on our Giving Tuesday fundraiser page at the link above. 

  • 2. it's fun!

    The Elves of Mischief and Fun will be live on Facebook throughout the day. These special hosts will be delivering Mystery Prizes to the classes that receive the most online donations during our Power Hours, plus they might have some school mischief in store! 

  • 3. we need you!

    A generous donor has offered a $1,000 bonus prize for each Power Hour if we hit these goals! So during the below time slots, we challenge our school community to the following: 

    • 9-10 AM: Can you make more than 50 gifts in this hour? 
    • 1-2 PM: Can you give more than $5,000 in this hour?  
    • 8-9 PM: Will more than 25 people make a second gift for the day during this hour? 
  • 4. you can win!

    Everyone who gives and then posts an “I gave!” photo on Facebook or Instagram, tagging #CLSGivingTuesday2017, will be entered to win a $100 Amazon gift card.  Statistics show that every “share” can earn the school an additional $40.  

  • 5. it all benefits our school!

    The proceeds will benefit terrific facility improvements including more sports bleachers, an improved roadside school sign, and a redesigned welcome sign in the lobby using our new school seal. Plus, you’ll make it possible for CLS families in need to get financial aid, so they will be able to continue their Christian education with us. Finally, the funds raised will continue supporting last year’s new special electives, like the Scholars Program. You make it all possible!
