Today, December 2, is a national day of generosity, #GivingTuesday. It’s a day when you can make a big impact on the Joe Foss Institute (JFI). With your help, monies raised today will directly impact students, teachers and veterans.blue_dark

Your contributions help students like Jeff, a tenth-grade student from Arizona. After a Veterans Inspiring Patriotism presentation, he writes, “Yesterday you made me more proud that I am an American.” Or Jessica, a seventh-grader from Texas, “Thank you, you helped me learn about how this country was founded. You gave your time to fight for this country. You taught me how to respect and love my country even more.”

Civics Education in our country is in crisis with fewer than half of eighth-graders understanding the purpose of the Bill of Rights and three-quarters of high school seniors unable to name a power granted to Congress by the Constitution.

Your donation today will put more veterans in classrooms and offer more teachers civics education lesson plans to use with their students. To date, JFI has served more than 1.4 million students, however, more needs to be done. Your help makes it possible.

If you make a gift online, we will earn matching funds from our partner, Network for Good – making your support go even further. With your support, we can advance civics education and patriotism for America’s future leaders – our children
