Please support the Steve Fund on Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2017

This year, on Tuesday, November 28, 2017, the Steve Fund joins the global Giving Tuesday movement. This a is day dedicated to giving – when charities, families, businesses, community centers, students, retailers and more will all come together for #GivingTuesday – a movement to celebrate giving and encourage more, better and smarter giving during the holiday season that we are proud to be part of.

Please join the Giving Tuesday movement by helping the Steve Fund support the mental health and emotional well-being of students of color. There is an urgent need. Research indicates that students of color at American colleges and universities are almost twice as likely not to seek care when they feel depressed or anxious compared to white students. Inequity in mental health is a dire national problem which impedes well-being of communities of color. Our young people face daunting challenges as they transition to adulthood, including those fortunate enough to pursue higher education. Your support is critical to the mental health, college completion, and life chances of the nation’s most rapidly growing demographic and the population which drives our work—young people of color.

#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. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. It is a celebration of America’s greatest traditions: generosity, entrepreneurialism, community. Everyone has something to give. You can give time or expertise, monetary donations large or small, simple acts of kindness, food or clothing.

Please remember to support the Steve Fund, on Giving Tuesday on November 28, or at any other time. You can donate at www.stevefund.org/donate

Thank you.

The Steve Fund is dedicated to the mental health and emotional well-being of students of color.

We are taking action. Learn more.
