Giving Tuesday falls on November 30th this year. This marks the biggest “giving day” of the year for nonprofits around the world. End of year fundraising is vital for every single organization; it determines which programs will be funded as the new year begins. Giving Tuesday began in 2012 to harness social media to help a nonprofit in NYC and has grown into a global movement.
Giving Tuesday can still be confusing to some of you that want to support WHE. Some of you do not like participating in fundraisers through social media. Many of you do not like the “one-day-only” pressure of a single Tuesday a year to make matching funds.
We make it simple.
Any contribution you make to the work of WHE will be matched up to $15,000. through Dec. 4th! You can donate through website, an email newsletter/alert, a social media fundraiser, through the mail, or even through a text message!
If you are someone that uses Facebook to make contributions, this is where the bonus perk gets tricky. ALL contributions to any Facebook fundraiser for WHE will be matched from Nov. 26 – December 4th.
However, contributions made on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 30th, are eligible to be matched again by Facebook. Facebook is running an $8 million dollar match.
Matching begins on Tuesday, November 30, 2021 at 8am Eastern time, 5am Pacific time. $8 million might seem like a lot of money, but there are a lot of nonprofits on Facebook! In past years the matching funds run out fast. So if you are planning on donating through Facebook, you should contribute early if your goal is to get our match and Facebooks.
Together we have stopped abuses, changed policy and more. There is much more to do. There are no “magic wands” that “end things forever.” The fight goes on… and we continue to run for the wild.
No matter how you choose to contribute, you support the vital work of WHE to protect and preserve our treasured wild horses and burros. (you can see some of our work in 2021 HERE)
