MDEDF aiming to raise $12K for STEAM on Giving Tuesday

CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, CA (Nov. 25, 2022) — On November 29, people all over the world will come together and harness the power of human connection to change our world. Will you join in?

Mt. Diablo Education Foundation has set a #GivingTuesday goal to raise $12,000 for STEAM programs districtwide. This includes helping more elementary students attend Exploring New Horizons outdoor education camps.  These multi-day experiences became a rite of passage for many students in the past. But now, many schools struggle to raise the money needed to fully fund these trips.

Will you help?  Here are 3 easy ways:

Donate now.  Don’t want to wait until Giving Tuesday?  Donate today and know that your donation will go towards funding STEAM programs for our students.

Spread the word. Encourage friends, family, and colleagues to join you. Share on social media what quality STEAM education means to you. Use the special hashtag #MDEDFGIVE and tag foundation socials in your post to harness the power of social media and connection to help share your story.

Ask your employer if they match donations too.  Some companies even match #GivingTuesday employee donations at $2 for every $1 given.

No amount is too small, and every dollar you give directly benefits the students. These donations ensure that all students in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District, regardless of zip code, have access to quality STEAM opportunities.

Support STEAM programs now.
