AHA Embraces 'Giving Tuesday' Movement


Demarest, NJ: The Academy of the Holy Angels has joined the growing global movement known as Giving Tuesday. Widely celebrated as the official start of the charitable season, Giving Tuesday falls on November 29 this year. 

The Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact, which is based at New York City’s 92nd Street Y, launched Giving Tuesday in 2012 as a means to foster donations to worthy causes. Held each year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday is a powerful reminder that there is more to the season than Black Friday and Cyber Monday, both of which focus on consumerism. This new effort, which is mainly promoted through social media, invites individuals and organizations to donate funds or time to improve the lives of others.

According to, over 7,000 participants in more than 70 countries throughout the world raised $116,000,000 online on Giving Tuesday 2015.

Since 1879, thousands of women have passed through the portals of Academy of the Holy Angels high school, the oldest private girls’ school in New Jersey. Many go on to study at some of the nation’s best universities, earning high-ranking positions in medicine, government, law, education, public service, business, arts and athletics. Our goal is to provide each girl with the tools she needs to reach the fullness of her potential—spiritually, intellectually, socially and physically, by offering a first –rate education in a nurturing environment where equal importance is placed on academic excellence, character development, moral integrity and giving service to others.
