IDPE Giving Week – celebrating giving in schools
What is the IDPE Giving Week?
IDPE Giving Week is an opportunity for all schools to come together and celebrate the generosity of our communities. Whether you choose to run a giving day, thank your community, recruit new volunteers, or share the value of philanthropy to your school, join us Monday 15 – Sunday 21 November 2021 to celebrate the impact of giving on the lives of our young people.
In the lead up to Giving Week, we will be sharing resources, podcasts and webinars based around five key ways that you can celebrate giving in your school community. Make sure to sign up to our upcoming webinars and check back each week for more resources.
