Kick Off the Giving Season with Thetford Academy

Each year, on the last Tuesday in November, Thetford Academy celebrates the global generosity movement GivingTuesday. At TA, like many nonprofit organizations around the country and the world, GivingTuesday is a launch to our giving season. With the power of your philanthropy, we can fulfill TA’s our mission to celebrate the unique worth of all students, to nurture their strengths, and to challenge them to fulfill their potential.

This year, we’re excited to kick off giving season with you. We’ll be sharing stories from our students, alumni, and community members about how this “independent school with a public purpose” is making a difference. Your gift to TA today will support our commitment to education, equity, and community and will be put to work creating opportunities for all students.

We hope you’ll join us on Tuesday with a donation to Thetford Academy and help us kick off the giving season with the “shared humanity and radical generosity” of the GivingTuesday movement.
