This Giving Tuesday we give thanks for all we are grateful for this year. At CARE, we are grateful for the endless dedication of our volunteers who support our mission to empower the next generation for financial success. As schools have closed, we’ve made the transition from in-person to virtual classrooms.
We are committed to partnering with teachers, schools and community organizations to reach young people however we can with live virtual presentations, recorded videos and even our new Voices of CARE podcast. The need for financial literacy education has never been greater.
Your contributions help CARE:
- Train more volunteers to deliver virtual presentations
- Reach more young people in more places
- Build strong financial futures
Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities. CARE is focused on doing what we do best. Our volunteers combine their real-life experiences with quality financial literacy content to help young people make educated financial decisions about their future.
If you are able to, please consider a donation to help us advance financial literacy education. It is best said by Nathan, a high school senior:
CARE volunteers should be given an hour or so to present to our entire school so everyone in every grade in our high school can know about this information, because this stuff can make or break your future.
Thank you for your consideration. If you would like to make a donation, please click here.
Please stay safe and healthy.
