Thanksgiving…Black Friday…Cyber Monday…#GivingTuesday…The Day to Give Back! This year, Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have teamed up to make #GivingTuesday 2017 even more special than ever before!
Around the world people give each and every day, but in 2012, #GivingTuesday was introduced as a day set aside to give back. It’s a great way to prepare for the Christmas season following our day of Thanksgiving and lots of shopping on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday celebrates generosity and gives people the opportunity to learn more about the organizations and causes they support. We recognize that PCA families give throughout the year, but for those who specifically plan for year-end giving, we want to make that as simple as possible. We invite you to consider making the PCA Annual Eagle Fund part of your #GivingTuesday plans and be part of the team that is working to shape young lives to be tomorrow’s Christian leaders!
On #GivingTuesday, November 28, you can join the fun of this amazing day of giving and hopefully have your money matched! This year, Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have partnered together to increase giving on #GivingTuesday. According to the Facebook donation website,
- “On this global day of giving Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are matching up to $2 million of funds raised on Facebook for U.S. nonprofits. Facebook is also waiving its fees for donations made to nonprofits on Facebook this #GivingTuesday. Donations to nonprofits made through Facebook’s charitable giving tools on November 28th will be matched up to $50,000 per nonprofit or $1,000 per fundraiser or donate button, until the $2 million in matching funds run out. The match will begin at 8AM EST (5AM PST).”
Plymouth Christian wants to use this amazing opportunity as a way to grow the dollars you plan to donate during your year-end giving! You can use the following “Donate” Button to make a donation to PCA at any time during the year, during this year-end giving campaign, and especially on #GivingTuesday 2017 to hopefully allow PCA to be included on the matching gifts made possible by the Gates Foundation!
In addition to the payment method through Paypal above, you can also make your year-end gift throughout the month of December by clicking HERE. Once you have created an account or signed in, please select PCA Annual Eagle Fund as the beneficiary of your #GivingTuesday/Year End donation.
Thank you SO MUCH for your partnership in our mission!
