NEWS: GivingTuesday Kicks Off Year-End Giving Season!

November 29, 2016

11-29-2016-3Please Make a Year-End Gift to Support SCAN’s Child Abuse Prevention Programs: SCAN of Northern Virginia works to educate, energize and empower people to protect children in our community.  As 2016 draws to a close, please consider a year-end gift to change the lives of children and parents who need it most:

  • Your gift of $25 can provide a parent or pregnant teen enrolled in a parenting class with a Nurturing Parenting workbook, which can provide opportunities for self-reflection plus valuable reminders long after parenting class has ended.
  • Your gift of $60 can cover the printing and production costs of one CASA volunteer training manual. This training manual serves as a valuable resource for all of our CASA volunteers long after their 6 week, 32 hour training has ended.
  • Your gift of $150 can provide a pack and play with a bassinet, crib sheets and educational materials for new parents in our Operation Safe Babies program.
  • Your gift of $200 can provide the ingredients to make dinner for a parenting class (average 20 parents; 25 children). Before each parenting session, SCAN serves a family style dinner for the participant families to create community and reduce barriers to participation.


Support SCAN for #GivingTuesday on December 2nd

November 20, 2014

SCAN has joined #GivingTuesday, a worldwide effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Taking place December 2, 2014 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a national moment around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.

Noted as “one of the best nonprofits in the DC region” by the Catalogue for Philanthropy this year, we’ll be accepting donations on December 2nd through their site here, where we’ll track our goal of raising $5,000 during one day of giving. We also welcome you to join our Council of Young Professionals in posting a photo to our Facebook page or Twitter feed with the hashtags #givingtuesday and #unselfie. Tell your friends about why you choose to support SCAN on #GivingTuesday!
