An invitation to independent schools: Giving Tuesday Chat

With #GivingTuesday coming soon, Cheshire Academy is extending an invitation to all independent schools to join us for our annual #ISGivingTuesday Twitter chat.

Author’s Update – Summer 2016: Thanks to all the schools who joined us for our successful #ISGivingTuesday chats 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!

Original post from 11-19-2015:

Each year, numerous schools gather to share ways in which schools give back, with many continuing the chat beyond our scheduled hour. More than 200 tweets went out using the #ISGivingTuesday hashtag, which reached 47,000 users and had more than 254,000 impressions.

This year, we hope to exceed these results. The discussion will take place on Twitter using the hashtag #ISGivingTuesday on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, 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. Register for the chat using this form, and we’ll send a reminder to you the day of the chat. Even if you don’t register, we hope to see your tweets.

As a partner of Giving Tuesday, 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.

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, email
