SPX Gives Day
As we embark on our third annual SPX Gives Day with a hefty goal of $100,000 in 24 hours, it is truly humbling to look back on our past two giving day challenges. On our inaugural SPX Gives Day we never imagined that we would surpass our goal by more than $20,000. After such a huge success we upped the ante and last year challenged our community to raise $80,000 in 24 hours. Our parents, alumni, alumni parents, grandparents and friends responded to our rally cry in droves giving back over $91,000. These extraordinary results are such an accurate reflection of the SPX community, a community that is always willing to come together for the greater good of our beloved school.
Our third annual SPX Gives Day, November 27, is being held again on Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the charitable season when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community, so we hope that you will join us and help beat last year’s goal!
If you have not yet given to the SPX Fund, this is your chance! If you have already given this year, thank you for your gift! We encourage you to consider another nominal gift on SPX Gives Day, as only gifts made on November 27 count towards the grand total. Your additional gift will inspire others to give as well.
