Giving Tuesday is November 28!
What is Giving Tuesday?
Preceded by “giving thanks” on Thursday, then frenzied shopping on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday; GivingTuesday is an opportunity to support charities by celebrating generosity and giving back.
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 all 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) so the EARLIER YOU GIVE, THE BIGGER IMPACT YOUR DONATION WILL MAKE.
