GivingTuesday | November 29, 2022
For the past 5 years we have asked our community to give back- after Black Friday and Shop Small Saturday and following Cyber Monday. GivingTuesday lands on November 29th this year. We are asking you to consider supporting an amazing local Oskaloosa nonprofit that needs your help.
Each GivingTuesday we raise money for the Oskaloosa Art Center’s youth programming. Last year we set a goal to raise $2000 to make our art classes more accessible to kids and families. We didn't make that goal, however, because of you and the funds that were donated, we were able to provide scholarships to deserving students who otherwise would not have been able to attend Summer Art Camp or Teen Art Club.
This year we are going to stretch a little further to a $3000 goal! We believe we can do it!
Meta (formally known as Facebook) is matching up to $7 million in qualifying donations! They are doing things a little bit different this year. When you sign up to donate monthly to a nonprofit on Facebook, Meta will match 100% of your donation after you make your second monthly donation. We’ll match up to $100 per donation, $100,000 per nonprofit and up to $7 million in total across all organizations. To be eligible for Meta's match, people need to sign up to donate monthly between November 15 and December 31, 2022. Meta will continue covering donation processing fees so everything raised through fundraisers on their platform goes directly to the organization you support
(which is hopefully FACE).
Your contribution will make a really big, really positive impact in our area.
Whether you donate $5 or $500, every little bit will help us continue in one of our efforts which is to provide exceptional fine arts education to every child within our reach.
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Join the movement and give – each Tuesday and every day – whether it’s some of your time, a donation, or the power of your voice in your local community.
It’s a simple idea: whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give.
