#GivingTuesday is on November 28 this year and is a day where globally, individuals direct donations online to their favorite charities and nonprofit organizations. #GivingTuesday is fueled by the power of social media and collaboration towards goodwill
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving to charities and nonprofit organizations.
This year The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Facebook are offering nonprofit organizations an opportunity to boost their fundraising campaigns when individuals give through Facebook and all donations will be matched!
Individuals who donate to FairVote on November 28 can double their donations (up to $1000). The FB-Gates 2016 #GivingTuesday campaign will match up to $50,000 per charity or nonprofit. Starting at 8AM on November 28th, FB-Gates Organizations will dole out $2 million nationwide, until the matching funds run out so give early!
FairVote, including our FairVote California and FairVote New Mexico offices, will participate in the FB-Gates offer with a goal of raising $50,000 on #GivingTuesday.
