GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, annually taking place on the first Tuesday following Black Friday. Often labeled as the “opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for their favourite causes.
In keeping with the founding values of Brescia, as set out by the Ursuline Sisters, Brescia’s 2020 GivingTuesday Campaign supported student scholarships, helping to ensure that all students have access to quality education in what has proven to be a difficult year for so many.
To our generous donors, Thank You. Your gifts honour the Ursuline legacy and continues Brescia’s vital mission of educating tomorrow’s women leaders.
