Giving Tuesday

November 05, 2013

The General Board of Global Ministries announced that for one day only, on December 3, 2013 as part of UMC #GivingTuesday, gifts made online to any project through The Advance will be matched - See more at: http://www.umcmission.org/Giving-Tuesday#sthash.WUNS6cA2.dpuf

People get up to get great deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but plan to set your clocks on Tuesday, December 3, 2013 for #GivingTuesday!  Global Ministries is participating in #GivingTuesday by matching donations given to Advance Projects on-line.  From 12:01 am EST until 11:59 pm EST, Global Ministries will match up to $500,000 given in donations through The Advance on-line.  The maximum single donor match will be $10,000 with for a single Advance Project -$50,000.

#Giving Tuesday, a campaign that promotes a national day of giving that celebrates and encourages charitable giving, set for Dec. 3 this year, offers nonprofits a great opportunity to raise funds online. 
Nonprofits raised more than 10 million last year on #GivingTuesday, 53% over 2011.  Almost 3,000 nonprofits participated.
I encourage you to donate and ask others to as well.  Use Social Media to share about #Giving Tuesday.
