GIVING FIRST TUESDAY: NOVEMBER 23
YOUR LOCAL NONPROFITS PUT THE COMMUNITY FIRST ALL YEAR, PUT THEM FIRST THIS GIVING SEASON.
As the season’s festivities get underway, we are thinking about our local nonprofits and all they give to our community year-round. This year, HERC is joining an MKE movement to flip the script on Giving Tuesday by encouraging you to give the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday.
Traditionally, one of the most popular days of charitable giving, Giving Tuesday falls after Black Friday and Cyber-Monday. Before the hustle and bustle of the traditional shopping weekend, Giving First Day gives us each an opportunity to reflect on the needs of our community and invest in our values.
This year HERC, the only organization in Wisconsin solely dedicated to Holocaust education, launched our new, cutting-edge Holocaust Education Map website that includes over 100 complete lesson plans, sortable by Wisconsin Social Studies standards, class duration, grade level, and theme. Our next step is to hold virtual and in-person educator training workshops, to support educators in implementing Wisconsin Act 30 (Holocaust and other genocides education). Your gift will enable HERC to cultivate and expand our world-class offerings for educators, students, and communities throughout Wisconsin, bringing the lessons of the Holocaust home for future generations. Your donation helps HERC provide free Holocaust education and professional development programs for Wisconsin educators and their students so that we may work together to combat antisemitism and hate in Wisconsin and beyond. We hope you for your support this Giving First.
