Double your Donations on #GivingTuesday, Nov. 28

26 November 2017


LDA GivingTuesday GreenLogoBill & Melinda Gates Foundation are teaming up with Facebook to match up to $2 million in funds raised for nonprofits in the U.S.

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.


How It Works

Facebook will match $1 million in donations to U.S. nonprofits—up to $50,000 per nonprofit and $1,000 per fundraiser or donate button—and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will also kick in $1 million.  

The match will begin at 8AM EST (5AM PST) - please donate early and share before the matching funds dry up.
