May Day of Giving

Unite and Unite!

List of 6 frequently asked questions.

  • What is #MayDayofGiving?

    Leading up to Shady Hill's annual May Day celebration, we are asking the community, near and far, to Unite and Unite in support of our students and faculty with a financial gift to the Shady Hill Fund.
    Our #MayDayofGiving celebrates our community by seeking participation from all its members: alumni, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty, and staff. Participation is the key--not the gift size. As our number of gifts rise, several challenge gifts will unlock.

    • The first challenge? Be one of the first 150 gifts needed to unlock a $25,000 gift!
    • To participate in the challenge, make your gift anytime between now and May 8.
    • Be a part of #MayDayofGiving!
  • Why is #MayDayofGiving different than any other day?

    Shady Hill values gifts of all sizes. #MayDayofGiving embodies that community value by counting the number of gifts and not their dollar value toward the challenges. Your gift, no matter the size, will have a resounding impact on the School!
  • Who can participate in the #MayDayofGiving challenge?

    Anyone and everyone in the Shady Hill community can participate--Alumni! Parents! Parents of Alumni! Grandparents! Faculty! TTC Alumni! Neighbors! Friends!

    We are calling on everyone to Unite and Unite!
