#GivingTuesday: Together we can!

On December 1,  2020, people all around the world are coming together to tap into the power of human connection and strengthen communities and change our world. Brookwood Christian will be participating in #GivingTuesday and we need your help! 

By joining the #GivingTuesday movement, you’re proving that in times of uncertainty, generosity can bring the whole world together. 

Facebook will match donations to this fundraiser using the following criteria: 

  • Matches are made on a first-come, first-served basis and will continue until the $7 million fund has been met.
  • For the first $2 million, Facebook will match 100% of donations made to qualifying fundraisers. For example, if you donate $100, Facebook will also donate $100.
  • For the remaining $5 million, Facebook will match 10% of donations made to qualifying fundraisers. For example, if you donate $100, Facebook will donate $10.
  • Facebook will cap donations at:
    • $100,000 total donations matched per nonprofit
    • $20,000 in qualifying donations per donor
  • The Offer is valid ONLY on GivingTuesday on Facebook donations through the charity’s fundraising post.

Last year we raised $3,350, exceeding our $3,000 goal, and this year our goal is $4,000 to help offset the fundraising shortfall as a result of COVID-19 restrictions. Of course, just like previous years, we would be more than glad to exceed that goal.

Encourage your friends and family to join you in creating real impact on December 1  by sharing what our mission means to you and why you support our organization (here are some ideas). Make sure to use hashtag #GivingTuesday and tag us so we can share!
