Happy #GivingTuesday, Friends!
We hope you’ve had a gratitude-filled Thanksgiving, survived or ignored Black Friday, and are gearing up for Tuesday’s amazing window of opportunity to make a 200% charitable impact by donating to GITC on Facebook! Thanks for checking in with us about ways to make a big difference for kids. The need for our programs is growing quickly and your help is requested to make musical learning in classrooms possible this school year!
On Facebook, a 100% Match Means 200% Good!
If our mission warms your heart, please give and your tax deductible gift will be matched dollar for dollar through our fundraising campaign HERE!
Our main Facebook page can be found HERE.
The Way It Works
If you donate on Facebook, Facebook and PayPal will team up to:
How To Earn a 100% Match!
If you wish to see your dollars go up and total 200%, please give first thing in the morning on Tuesday, November 27th! Then you will be sure to get the match. Giving later could work fine, too, but we don't know. You’ll want to watch to see what amount of funds are still available for matches as the hours go by. Our tip- mark your calendar and set your alarm for 6 a.m. Pacific, 7 a.m. Mountain, 8 a.m. Central or 9 a.m. Eastern. Then click and make public schools a better place to learn and grow!
You Deserve Thanks So Please Send Your Address!
If you donate on Facebook, we will be able to see your gift come in, but we will need your snail mail address in order to send you an official GITC thank you letter and gift. Since Facebook doesn’t collect or give that to us, could you possibly help us find you?
When you donate through the campaign, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will get a GITC goodie in the mail.
Want to Donate on Tuesday but Not Through Facebook?
Want to Contribute but Not in the Morning?
No Problem! Visit Us at GlobalGiving!
If you prefer to drink your coffee slowly, meditate, do some yoga or go for a run and then give....or your morning meetings and duties prohibit getting online so early, then this option is perfect for you! Please visit GlobalGiving.org and donate to GITC projects there anytime Tuesday!
3 GlobalGiving.org Projects From Which to Choose
Our special campaigns at GlobalGiving are also providing donors with a match on any gift given to one of our 3 active campaigns on #GivingTuesday. You can channel your giving to your favorite project. Here they are:
Is There a Best Time To Get a Match on GlobalGiving?
Donating anytime on #GivingTuesday will get you a match. This platform is making it easy to donate without the risk of matching funds running out all day. You can contribute there from 6 a.m.until midnight EST to qualify.
How Much Will Be Matched?
Globalgiving is giving away $150,000 in matching funds over the course of the whole day/night proportionally. We will learn the amount of the match on Wednesday. The amount will be based upon how many donors give - and how much they give- to each charity. Though it will most likely be well under 50%, it totally helps us get music out there and we appreciate every extra dollar you give and that they increase!
Thank you Friends for taking the time to make this crucial difference for students. They need us and so do the teachers. If we stand up for music in education and make our love felt through supplying teacher training, musical instruments, instruments, supplies, educational materials and more, the students will benefit at every level- physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. You can help them become passionate learners by making music a positive part of every day, and give their teachers the tools and support that make teaching the inspired endeavor that brought them to education in the first place. Let's do this!
