During this time of year, we hear a lot about Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. Did you know that there is also Giving Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving? Since its founding in 2012, Giving Tuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. This year, Giving Tuesday takes place on December 1st.
As part of DFW’s 13th Month Campaign, we are issuing a special challenge tied to Giving Tuesday. Last year’s 13th Month campaign boasted 1,500 individual donors, out of a membership base of more than 8,000. So far this year, 900 donors have participated in our year-end campaign. We want to double last year’s participation goal! Or imagine what we could achieve with 100% member participation!
The goal of our Participation Challenge is to receive gifts from 1,000 individual donors during a 10-day period starting on Giving Tuesday. All donations received online or postmarked between December 1st and 10th will be counted in the challenge.
We will be sending out a series of emails to promote this challenge. If you have already given to the 13th Month campaign, we sincerely thank you and will not be sending you these emails. We also plan to report our progress on the homepage of our website.
Please think of Dining for Women on Giving Tuesday and help us reach our goal!
