Dear Friends and Colleagues:
#GivingTuesday is on Tuesday, December 3rd! As you may know, #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that aims to transform how people participate in the giving season: inspiring people to take collective action to improve their communities and help create a better world.
The National Center for Urban School Transformation would be truly thankful to be one of organizations you choose to support this season. We are committed to identifying, celebrating, awarding, and studying America’s best urban public schools: schools in which every demographic group served outperform state averages on multiple indicators. We believe it is critically important to recognize and learn from the best practices of schools that are proving that educational excellence and equity are attainable. At the same time, we strive to partner with schools, school districts, and other organizations that are eager to emulate the results of the great schools we award and study. Each year, we learn more and more about how schools, districts, parents, communities, and students can work together to transform public education so that all students are prepared to pursue their dreams in college, careers, and life.
Your gift to the National Center for Urban School Transformation helps us do the following:
- Identify and award additional amazing, deserving urban schools,
- Develop new print, video, and multi-media products that share the best practices of America’s best urban schools, and
- Engage new partners in efforts to transform more urban schools to the benefit of children.
Please consider supporting our efforts. We greatly appreciate your tax-deductible gift.
