NYGivesDay = Giving Tuesday!

We are happy to announce that we are now set up on the Give-Gab platform with a profile and accessibility for donor giving. Give-Gab is waiving all fees on NYGives Day for non profits. NY Gives Day is the same as Giving Tuesday, 11/29/16. More and more states, counties, and communities are working together to help showcase eachother’s needs and bring more visibility to all non-profits – NYGives Day is a statewide effort to this aim.

Imagine Crossroads being able to achieve needed technology to improve instructional accessibility and security! Technology is a basic educational component that we struggle with due to our non-profit status. You can help us!  Make a donation on our site  or on the NYGivesDay site above.

Or by check made out to Crossroads Center for Children, mailed to 1136 North Westcott Rd. Suite 100, Schenectady, NY 12306

We are ever grateful for all of the help and support we receive from the community!

giving tuesday heartDear #GivingTuesday /NYGivesDay Partners,

One week to go!

We are endlessly inspired by all of your help and encouragement, dedication and support for our mission.

Your participation puts you in the #GivingTuesday community which is global, and the #NYGivesDay community which is statewide. You are part of a movement for good, for giving, kindness, and connecting.  November 29th is surely a day for all of us to make a positive impact on our community.

“No matter who you are, where you live, what your income is, or how old (or young) you are, #GivingTuesday reminds us that everyone has something to give.”  Let’s “kick off this holiday giving season by celebrating the values that matter most in this world and that ultimately connect us as people.”   – #GivingTuesdayTeam

So, what does giving mean to you? How will you give? What impact do you see when you give? Why do you give? We would love your stories, pictures, and posts. Be sure to use the tags #CrossroadsCenterStartSmart  #GivingTuesday  #NYGivesDay  #UNselfie to help us all connect.

CLICK HERE TO TWEET: “Every act of generosity counts, & they mean even more when we give together. On 11/29 let’s come together to celebrate #GivingTuesday!”

Save the date – 11/29/16 is Giving Tuesday and NYGives Day!

See what your donation will mean to making Crossroads safer and smarter through technology.

We need your help to START SMART! Help us to reach our goal of raising $5,500! That’s 10 percent of the budget for our full SMART SCHOOL project, and will allow us to accomplish Step 1 to fulfill needed computers in our school. Read about the full project here: CROSSROADS SMART SCHOOLS project GT

11/29/16 will be our 3rd year of participating in Giving Tuesday! This year, we will be joining NYGivesDay, a platform that is collaborating to help and boost visibility for non-profits across NYS!

Our past Giving Tuesday campaigns raised funding needed to build our pavilion and expand our iPad program. This year we want to start our SMART SCHOOLS project to make Crossroads as Smart and Safe as can be.
