Help our Club top last year’s ONE day total of $73,000!

about giving Tuesday

Every year, our Club is challenged with raising money to fund our operations.  Nearly 60% of the income we raise comes directly from our community - individuals, businesses, churches, and our special events and fundraisers. In 2016, we launched a new fundraising campaign centered around the worldwide Giving Tuesday movement.  The Giving Tuesday movement comes after Black Friday and Cyber Monday and challenges people around the world to give back to others. In one day, nonprofits around the world challenge their supporters to raise as much as they can in 24 hours on Giving Tuesday.

Our Giving Tuesday campaign successfully raised $30,000 in ONE day for 2016 and 2017 and exceeded all expectations in 2018 with a total of $73,000!  Part of our success includes a team of match sponsors who double the impact of every dollar!

Save the date and join us to make this year's Giving Tuesday the biggest one yet! 

2018 Match sponsors

In addition to a match from our Board of Directors of $15,250, the following Community Sponsors brought our match total to $20,000! A very generous community lead gift pledged right before Thanksgiving increased our goal for Giving Tuesday to $60,000 and we more than exceeded our goal!

All match sponsors are publicized to the Club's donors and supporters through social media, email and direct mail publications.  Match sponsors ensure that the individual gifts raised through the Club's Giving Tuesday campaign are doubled - thus maximizing their match donation. This "expense-free" fundraiser means that 100% of the donations raised go directly to support the Club's mission. 

Interested in supporting our GT campaign as a match sponsor?  Great!  Contact Kathleen de la Torre,, 828-885-7800.
