#GivingTuesday is November 28th this year. Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have generously offered to match up to $2 million of funds raised for US nonprofits through Facebook’s charitable giving tools. Donations will be matched up to $50,000 per nonprofit, with a max of $1,000 per donation, until the $2 million in matching funds run out. Donate here by clicking on the blue ‘Donate’ button on our page.
Is the matching campaign time sensitive?
Somewhat! The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will match up to $2 million across all of Facebook. So, once this number is hit, the matching campaign will conclude. The campaign starts at 5 AM PST, 8 AM EST, 11/28 – so don’t sleep in too late!
What does this mean for you and Global Grandmothers?
If you donate $10, Global Grandmothers will receive $20.
If you donate $50, Global Grandmothers will receive $100…and so on.
How will my donation be used?
Global Grandmothers will allocate 100% of the donations it receives on #GivingTuesday to our recommended nonprofits. All donations will be evenly divided among the 9 nonprofits we recommend, all who’ve passed our rigorous vetting process.
Are there any fees for the donation?
Nope! Facebook is generously covering all fees for donations on #GivingTuesday. Every dollar you give will be doubled and go directly to Global Grandmothers.
How do I donate through Facebook’s charitable giving tools?
It’s easy! Just head to our Facebook page and click the blue ‘Donate’ button on the top right of the page. Simply follow the prompt to complete the transaction and you’re done!
