During the last several years a social media-fueled event has been gaining steam throughout the U.S. and the World. This event, “GivingTuesday,” follows two other widely publicized days – “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday”. GivingTuesday, November 29, 2016, is a global day dedicated to giving. Last year, more than 45,000 organizations in 71 countries came together to celebrate GivingTuesday. Since its founding in 2012, GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.
This year the Fullerton College Foundation is joining the GivingTuesday movement. We have developed a unique donation program that combines our PinRaise smart-phone app partner along with a gift-matching program. Our goals are 1) raise awareness and support for the value of PinRaise and 2) greatly increase the donation value of each PinRaise transaction on GivingTuesday. Our hope is that every dollar donated through PinRaise on November 29th will be gift-matched many times over.
How can you help us make GivingTuesday a success? First, download the PinRaise app on your smart-phone and select the Foundation as your designated charity. Second, sign up and become a gift-match donor for GivingTuesday. Lastly, make a plan to use PinRaise on November 29th and support the businesses who give back to the Foundation through PinRaise purchases.
It’s important to note that you can be a gift-match donor without downloading the PinRaise app on your smart-phone.
