What? Giving Tuesday is a national day of giving, which comes after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, that encourages philanthropy and celebrates generosity. We participate to encourage our community to make an investment in the lives of the young men at Vianney.
For? The Griffin Fund, which is St. John Vianney High School’s annual invitation to alumni, parents, grandparents and friends to help ensure the strength of the Vianney mission.
When? Tuesday, November 28, 2017, from Midnight to 11:59 p.m.
Why? St. John Vianney High School has secured a $25,000 Matching Grant. You can give to Vianney any day of the year but this gives current donors an opportunity to leverage their gift and new donors an added incentive to support the young men at Vianney for the first time.
Who? Anyone can participate, however we specifically reach out to members of the Vianney family. When you make an investment in the Griffin Fund you join thousands of families from our community who support the young men at Vianney each year.
How? Alumni, parents, faculty, staff and students commit to sending emails and/or posting content on social media sites to spread the word and encourage participation.
We are asking you to help us spread the word to your family and friends on your personal social media so you can share the excitement of the Day of Giving. Post to social media by tagging @VianneyGriffins and using #GiveToVianney.
