Give to NPE on Giving Tuesday

Published by

This year, on Tuesday, November 29, 2016, the Network for Public Education is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. Last year, more than 45,000 organizations in 71 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. We invite you to join the movement and get out and give this November 29.

And we do hope that as you give, you will not forget public education. Now more than ever, our public schools need your support.

During 2017, The Network for Public Education will continue our work beating back the relentless efforts to privatize our schools. We don’t need to tell you that those efforts will intensify in 2017.

We have already begun a campaign to stop the approval of Betsy DeVos as U.S. Secretary of Education. So far, over 73 thousand friends of public education have participated in that campaign.

Those efforts will continue through December and January. We will create toolkits for you to use when contacting your senators. We will form alliances with other national groups, and begin a media campaign.

We will challenge the Trump administration on every effort to privatize our public schools. We will fight for the civil rights of all students and do all we can to ensure they feel welcome, safe and secure.

But we cannot accomplish this work without your help.

On Giving Tuesday, please give to the Network for Public Education. We are a 501 (c)(3) and therefore all donations are tax deductible.

You can donate online or send a check to:
