GivingTuesday is a global day of giving. To help raise awareness of charitable causes and encourage donors’ generosity, Facebook will match $7 million USD in qualifying donations made on Facebook during GivingTuesday!
This year, they’ve changed the way that they’re matching donations so that more donations will be matched.
How matching works:
Matches are made on a first-come, first-served basis and will continue until the $7M USD fund has been met.
First: Matching 100% of the first $2M
For the first $2million, they’ll match 100% of donations made to qualifying fundraisers. For example, if you donate $10, Facebook will also donate $10.
Second: Matching 10% after
For the remaining $5M, they'll match 10% of donations made to qualifying fundraisers. For example, if you donate $10, Facebook will donate $1.
Understand match caps:
They'll match donations to qualifying nonprofits up to:
$100,000 USD total donations matched per nonprofit
$20,000 USD in qualifying donations per donor
When matching will start:
Matching begins on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 at 8am Eastern Time. They’ll continue matching qualifying donations to nonprofits until the $7M match runs out.
Who is eligible for matching:
Any US-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is eligible to receive donations on Facebook may be matched.
The Angkor Dance Troupe is proud to have former dancers and members as current staff and community leaders throughout Lowell, MA. As we continue programming, we hope to develop the next generation of Junior Instructors and Dancers to contribute to the success of the organization and their personal and professional development.
We need your help! If 1,000 of our Facebook supporters and friends donate $20 each on December 1st to be matched, this means we raise enough funds to ensure our programming for Cambodian arts and culture can stay open until the end of the year. These programs benefit young individuals to provide skills and opportunities to become leaders personally and professionally.
Your donation will fund:
$50 = one student's tuition for one semester
$100 = one student's tuition for one year (two semesters)
$400 = employment of one Junior Instructor for one semester
$800 = employment of one Junior Instructor for one year (two semesters)
$1000 = supports one year of youth dance programming
Custom donation amounts are also available.
All donations are tax-deductible.
Please learn more about our Junior Instructors and Dancers as they answer how long they've been dancing with Angkor Dance Troupe, why they choose to stay, and one thing they would want others to know about our organization that someone may not know. (Click photo below for interview.)
