What an amazing opportunity...
Facebook and Paypal announced today their partnership to donate up to $7 million to non-profits who participate in #GivingTuesday.
Gilead raised over $7,000 on #GivingTuesday, all due to your incredible support.
Imagine if they only matched 10%, that would be $700 more for Gilead to encourage cancer patients with.
Here is the email press release with more details of this partnership:
What is Facebook doing for #GivingTuesday 2018?
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. (Gilead is one of these organizations)
- The matching dollars are available to any US-based nonprofit. If you're located outside the US and decide to fundraise for a US-based nonprofit, donations to your fundraiser could be matched.
- Each nonprofit and donor is eligible to be matched up to a certain amount, which we'll announce later.
- Facebook and PayPal will match donations starting at 5am PST and will continue matching donations made to nonprofits until the $7M match runs out.
#GivingTuesday has become a significant giving moment for causes to raise money and create impact.
This year, Facebook is partnering with PayPal to match donations totaling up to $7 million to US nonprofits on Facebook.
We’ll Match It, Because We Mean It:
100% Goes to Your Cause.
Every day (including #GivingTuesday), nonprofits using Facebook’s Payments to process donations pay no fee—100% of the donations goes to the charity.
#GivingTuesday on Facebook is growing.
Last year on #GivingTuesday, through donations both big and small, 473,000 people helped raise over $45 million to support over 47,000 organizations.
The percentage of overall U.S. giving on #GivingTuesday through Facebook grew from 4% in 2016 to 15% in 2017.
When we come together for the causes we care about, our impact is amplified.
With the progress we’ve made, we can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together this year.
