Occurring this year on December 1, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
REFI has supported educators and educational excellence in Rockingham County for over 20 years.
Our signature program is granting money to educators for innovative programs. This fall, we funded over $46,000 in grants due to the generosity of our donors. But, we had over 128 applications requesting over $92,000 in support. There is so much more we can do with your help.
How can you participate?
Follow REFI on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/RockinghamEducationalFoundation and SPREAD THE WORD via social media channels to friends, family and community members about REFI’s mission and participation on #GivingTuesday.
Encourage donors to go to our website on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 and support the mission of REFI by HONORING AN EDUCATOR.
It’s simple, just go to https://rockinghameducationalfoundation.ejoinme.org/donate , make a donation to our annual fund, and tell us which educator you wish to honor. The honoree will be notified of your gift in appreciation of his/her excellence, and REFI will use the donations to help fund more grants for deserving teachers!
Please consider joining in this effort. With your support we will continue to make a difference in the lives of our students!
