Palmetto Giving Day

Making A Splash With TMP’s Palmetto Giving Day!!!

It’s that time of year again… We are preparing for the largest one day giving event in Georgetown County – Palmetto Giving Day!  This single day has become so important to us because you have helped Teach My People raise $155,000 over the past three years on this single day of giving.  But it is so much bigger than that! You have also helped to make Georgetown County a better place to live, work and play as a part of the National Day of Giving effort.

This year, Georgetown County has 53 nonprofit organizations participating on Palmetto Giving Day with a goal of raising over $1 million.  Teach My People is proud to have been a catalyst with the Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation to keep this event going in our county and to see so many non-profits embrace the power of one day of giving!!

So, on Tuesday, May 1st we will ALL do something remarkable AGAIN for Georgetown County.  We will together raise as much money as possible for the organizations throughout Georgetown County that make our community vibrant.

Every gift given to Teach My People through will put Teach My People one step closer to earning a total match of $24,500 from the combined commitments of:

Taylor and Gruber

Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation

Falk-Griffin Foundation

Palmetto Cheese

Mustard Seed Foundation

Phil and Ruth Kitchen

McGill Law Firm

Friends, families and associates can visit on Tuesday, May 1st anytime between midnight and 11:59 pm on May 1st, go to and donate!  Every donation will go a long way in helping us meet our match and support our Summer Program and new, updated kitchen.  Our goal is to raise $70,000 for the following:

 To support our Summer Program which provides challenging and engaging learning experiences for our students so that they are prepared to return to school in the fall at a level of academic preparedness that is comparative to their peers.

 To support a new, updated kitchen so we can prepare snacks and dinner weekdays during the school year and breakfast and lunch during our Summer Program. Good nutrition is a key element to academic success!!!
