26 Nov The National Sigma Beta Club Foundation, Inc. Proclaims November 27, 2018 #GivingTuesday
The National Sigma Beta Club Foundation, Inc. has proclaimed November 27, 2018 #GivingTuesday – Global Day of Giving.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partnersâ€”charities, families, businesses, and individualsâ€”to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year, November 27, 2018, to kick off the holiday giving season and to inspire people to give back. Millions of people around the world have participated in the movement. As quoted by Arthur R. Thomas, Esq., President of the National Sigma Beta Club Foundation, â€œYour Federal Tax Exempt contributions will assist the Foundation and Sigma Beta Clubs throughout the United States financially to further fulfill their responsibilities as a Brotherhood of Conscious Men Embracing, Educating, & Empowering Young Men Through Mentoring, which will better position our Mentors in achieving their goals in nurturing and positioning these young men/boys to become the â€œNext Generation of Leaders Accepting the Responsibilities and Loving the Challenge.â€
Your donation to the National Sigma Beta Club Foundation, Inc. will be used to provide scholarship opportunities for senior Sigma Beta Club members throughout the United States and abroad who are graduating from high school and who desire to attend a college or university of their choice. Additionally, your tax-exempt donations will be used to support and enhance the development and implementation of various programs, projects and activities of Sigma Beta Clubs and members, inclusive of, but not limited to seminars, forums, workshops, class sessions, and recognition and achievement programs with the ultimate goals of mentoring and developing leadership skills and attributes of our Sigma Beta Club members and other participants. This is accomplished through a unified â€œOn the Job Training and Financial Investment Programâ€ in Bigger and Better Business, a â€œTutorial and Achievement Programâ€ in Education, a Sigma Against Teenage Pregnancy Plus Program, and Health and Wellness Programs in Social Action at the chapter, regional, state, and national levels within our Sigma Beta Clubs.
â€œThe Sigma Beta Club is the centerpiece of Phi Beta Sigmaâ€™s programmatic focus. Since the late 1950s, we still believe that a comprehensive mentoring approach will plot a trajectory of young men believing they have limitless possibilities as they pursue college to become whatever career their minds envision,â€ said Micheal E. Cristal, International President, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. â€œBy developing our African American males, we will directly cultivate a stronger African American community.

Founded in 2012 by the team in the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at 92nd Street Y http://www.92Y.org, #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. Over $300 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness. This year, #GivingTuesday falls on November 27. #GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.
