This GivingTuesday, Canyon Crest Academy Foundation will host 24 Hours of Gratitude with a multimedia celebration!
GivingTuesday will start on Tuesday, November 29th at Midnight with a digital campaign followed by live tours throughout the day starting at 9 AM until 1 PM interspersed with pre-recorded programming all focusing on how the donations raised by the CCA Foundation has funded arts, engineering, technology, the sciences and humanities, college and career counseling, and athletic programs.
We’ll take you for walks around campus and show you donations at work – classroom computers and software, students playing various sports with funded equipment and uniforms, a state-of-the-art studio and upgrades for the theater, gym, and weight room, lab equipment, innovative furniture, books and materials for the Media Center.
What is #GivingTuesday?GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past 9 years, this idea has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity—to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal.
Why your dollars matter: Although Canyon Crest Academy receives funds from the State of California, the amounts are insufficient to pay for the exemplary classroom instruction and numerous special programs that are the reason so many students choose to attend CCA. This gap between public funds and CCA’s actual needs seems to expand each year. The Foundation’s role is to raise funds to bridge that gap to support the expansive curriculum and enriching educational and athletic programs available to CCA students.
As always, GivingTuesday donors will have the option to support their favorite CCA program – Athletics, Envision, STEM or the general Ravens Fund. When you take a walk around the Canyon Crest Academy campus in Carmel Valley, you see the donations made to the Canyon Crest Academy Foundation at work – classroom computers and software, students playing various sports with funded equipment and uniforms, a state-of-the-art studio and upgrades for the theater, gym, and weight room, lab equipment, innovative furniture, books and materials for the Media Center. The CCAF also pays for coaching stipends and assistant coaching fees, guest teaching artists, graduation events, the world language lab and much more! Every student at Canyon Crest Academy benefits in some way from the generous donations made by CCA families to the Canyon Crest Academy Foundation.
