Three Ways to Recognize National Philanthropy Day

  • School News

National Philanthropy Day is recognized annually on November 15 as a day to celebrate charitable activities — donations, in-kind gifts and services, and volunteerism. Here are three ways for members of the HB community to recognize National Philanthropy Day: 

Make a Gift 

Since 1876, HB has given girls the tools needed to confidently embrace every opportunity that exists for them beyond our Shaker Heights campus. A gift to the Annual Fund ensures HB remains a place where girls are empowered to ask questions, challenge conventions, and explore endless possibilities. The Annual Fund supports:

  • outstanding faculty 
  • academic and experiential opportunities 
  • tuition assistance 

Random Acts of Kindness 

Pay it forward to a friend or loved with a random act of kindness. Here are ideas to get you started: 

  • pay for the person behind you in the drive-through 
  • let someone go ahead of you in a line
  • buy extra at the grocery store and donate it to a food pantry
  • buy flowers for someone (postal worker, grocery store clerk, bus driver, etc.)
  • post anonymous sticky notes with validating or uplifting messages around for people to find
  • compliment a peer or colleague on their work
  • send an encouraging text to someone
  • let a car into the traffic ahead of you

Send a Thank You Note 

Connect with a former teacher, mentor, or coach to thank them for the influence in your life. You can even make a gift to HB in their honor.
