Join Us for Giving Tuesday, December 1st
Black Friday and Cyber Monday now over, why not give a gift that makes a
difference in your local community?
The California Province of the Society of Jesus and other non-profits wish
to remind you that there is a meaningful gift-giving alternative today – Giving
Giving Tuesday is a day on which non-profits worldwide hope
the focus turns from the stress of holiday gift giving to the joy of supporting organizations and ministries that strive to make life better for local
communities. It is a day for coming together for one common purpose: to
celebrate generosity and philanthropy.
“We’re hopeful that in the spirit of giving, people will
also consider giving gifts to their local charities to support works that
benefit local communities on Giving Tuesday,” said Fr. Michael F. Weiler, SJ,
provincial of the California Province.
A Giving Tuesday gift to the California Province can help
provide for the ongoing health care of senior and infirm Jesuits who have dedicated
their lives to the service of others, the education and training of the next
generation of Jesuit priests and brothers, and the support of new or existing
ministries that provide necessary services and life-giving enrichment to the
poor and marginalized.
Gifts of any size make a difference. During this
Christmas season, please consider the gift of compassion. To make a gift on
Giving Tuesday – or today if you prefer not to wait until then – please use our secure website to designate your gift, or, please call the
California Province Advancement Office at (408) 884-1630.
