#GivingTuesday Marks Culmination of Year of Growth for 1:1 Fund

#GivingTuesday is today. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, for many organizations it marks the start of the charitable giving season that goes through the end of the year. For the last two years, #GivingTuesday has been a high-water mark for the 1:1 Fund, accounting for two of the highest days of giving in 1:1 Fund history. Last year's #GivingTuesday campaign raised $126,900 in savings incentives for 1:1 Fund partners (counting the 1:1 Fund's dollar-for-dollar match). 

And #GivingTuesday comes at the culmination of a tremendous year of programmatic and fundraising growth for the 1:1 Fund in 2017. In total, five programs have joined the 1:1 Fund in the last three months and represent communities as diverse as the Deep South in Mississippi (where our new partner, Springboard to Opportunities, is located) and American Indian country (represented by the Oklahoma Native Assets Coalition). Moreover, the Back to School campaign in September featured three new partners that joined mainstay partners and together taised a total of $133,551.50 via the 1:1 Fund, the second-largest campaign ever for the 1:1 Fund and the largest non-Giving Tuesday campaign.

Today, 11 out of our 16 partners are participating in #GivingTuesday, and you can find their donation pages below. Please consider supporting children’s savings initiatives through large and small donations today. 

In addition to the typical dollar-for-dollar match on any donations up to $500, the 1:1 Fund will also give a $500 bonus to the partner that has the most individual donors.
