Give a High $5 on Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday was founded in 2012 as a day that encouraged people to do good. Since then, this charitable day, which is always held the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, has been a way for nonprofit organizations to highlight their missions. 

Join us on November 29 for Giving Tuesday as we invest in opportunities together. 

Make a High $5 donation to the GIPS Foundation in honor of a GIPS staff member!
Include a personal note with your donation and we’ll take care of sharing each special shout out.
Whose face will you put a smile on for Giving Tuesday this year?

“We believe in the incremental growth of each generation. Generational growth is achievable with building groundwork that includes early and continuous education. As parents of a child in the GIPS system, we wholeheartedly support the GIPS Foundation and this campaign to recognize the teachers, staff and administration who are intricately and passionately involved in improving the lives of each student for generations to come.”

  • “The GIPS Foundation is here to help provide what students and families need as soon as a need arises! It is amazing to hear things from helping with basic needs, to helping a family pay a bill, or paying college application fees, the list goes on and on.”
