Author's Update - Summer 2016: Thanks to all the schools who joined us for our successful #ISGivingTuesday chat in 2014 and 2015. We look forward to hosting the next #ISGivingTuesday on November 29, 2016. Stay tuned for more details and follow us on Twitter for the latest updates!
Cheshire Academy students help light more than 2,000 luminaries as part of the Lights of Hope project.
With #GivingTuesday just around the corner, Cheshire Academy is extending an invitation to all independent schools to join us in discussing and sharing how schools give back.
As a partner of Giving Tuesday, we want to involve all independent schools and their extended communities in a group discussion. Our goal is to enable and empower faculty, students, families, alumni, and the entire independent school community to join in and promote giving. Participants in the chat can share what their schools have done to give back and showcase the efforts of students, families, alumni, and communities as well.
The discussion will take place on Twitter using the hashtag #ISGivingTuesday tomorrow, December 2, 2014, from 1-2 pm EST. This effort will coincide with the national observation of Giving Tuesday, which is meant to celebrate generosity during the holiday season.

We hope that independent schools and their communities will join the conversation around giving to help support the overall #GivingTuesday cause. If you have any questions about the Twitter conversations or how to participate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
