Supporting the Roan on #GivingTuesday

November 28, 2016

Tuesday, November 29 marks the 5th annual #GivingTuesday – a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday has, since it began in 2012, become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.

The Roan Program has so many, and so much, for which to be thankful, from our Founder’s initial concept for the Program and the support of those who helped him get it started, to our current Roan Scholars, Alumni, Parents, Donors, Partners, and other members of what has become the “Roan Family.”  #GivingTuesday provides another opportunity to support the Roan with financial gifts – gifts that help cover the cost of Roan scholarships, and provide Roan Scholars with the experiences, opportunities, and resources to more fully develop their potential for leadership excellence and lifelong impact.

On this #GivingTuesday, and as we count down the final days of 2016 and look ahead to another exciting year for the Roan Program in 2017, please consider a gift to the Roan.  To learn more, or to talk with a Roan staff member about gift opportunities, please contact us.
