According to its website, “The Episcopal Church is a participating partner this year [in Giving Tuesday] and we are raising money in support of one of our most unique, beautiful, promising, and in-need missions: Navajoland.”
The Episcopal Church in Navajoland is building six new traditional Navajo structures called hogans. These are used for ceremonial, educational, and spiritual purposes. You can read all about the project and the ways that it will strengthen the Episcopal Church in Navajoland – both their efforts to reach out and heal their communities and to support indigenous clergy.
Of course, Episcopal Relief and Development is open for donations any day.
You can even participate in Giving Tuesday via the Donate button on the Episcopal Cafe website!
As a counterpoint, John Chilton, Lead contributing editor, suggests that churches might heed the advice of Katherina Rosqueta, of the Center for High Impact Philanthropy at the University of Pennsylvania, quoted in the NPR segment, that
charities might think about also using the day to do a little giving themselves, thanking existing donors and telling them what impact they’ve already had.
Whatever you decide to do on Giving Tuesday, you can spread the good word on social media with a(n) #unselfie.
