What is #Giving2sday?
It is our version of the international day of giving, #GivingTuesday, that counters Black Friday and Cyber Monday and is always held the 1st Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Our Foundation calls this annual event, #Giving2sday, as every donation during #Giving2sday generates an additional or second gift to the fund(s) of the donor’s choice. (See what donations are eligible for the pro-rated matching funds below for details.)
Thanks to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees, Apex Clean Energy, E-Z-GO (a Textron Company), and The Mason Companies, the pro-rated matching pool is $32, 500 this year. When making a gift this year, please consider designating your gift or a portion of your gift to the Crawford Impact Fund - the fund that has granted more than $5.7 million back into our community.
Since so much of the success of #Giving2sday revolves around using social media to raise funds, we are encouraging everyone to go to https://cfcrawford.networkforgood.com. From that site, you can easily create your own fundraising page, solicit donations from your email and social media contacts, or donate yourself. We encourage you to especially send fundraising requests to old friends and classmates who may not be living here currently but would have a vested interest in helping Crawford County.
