Giving Tuesday

Please Join Us For A Day Of Giving
Tuesday, November 27, 2018


#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.

In support of #GivingTuesday on November 27, 2018, Facebook is partnering with PayPal to match up to $7 million in donations made on Facebook to eligible US-based 501(c)(3) nonprofits.

  • Facebook and PayPal will match donations starting at 8 a.m. and will continue matching donations made to nonprofits until the $7 million match runs out
  • Donations up to $250,000 per nonprofit and $20,000 per donor are eligible to be matched
  • 100% of the donations made through Facebook Payments go to the nonprofit

What does this mean for Council board members and donors? You can participate by donating to the Council on Facebook on Giving Tuesday starting at 8 a.m. on November 27, for a chance to have your gift matched.
