#GivingTuesday – What You Need to Know and How You Can Help

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement built by individuals and communities in the US and in countries around the world. On #GivingTuesday, millions of people come together to support and champion the causes they believe in by donating and fundraising on their behalf.

This year #GivingTuesday falls on November 28th. In celebration, Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are partnering once again on a national campaign to support nonprofits.

On #GivingTuesday, Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will be matching up to $2 million of funds raised on Facebook for US nonprofits. Facebook is also waiving its fees for donations made to nonprofits on Facebook this #GivingTuesday.

Donations to Northern Ocean Habitat made through Facebook’s charitable giving tools on November 28th will be matched up to $50,000 or $1,000 per fundraiser or donate button, until the $2 million in matching funds run out. The match will begin at 8AM EST (5AM PST). 

Every gift helps a family build a foundation. With your financial support, families in northern Ocean County can build strength, stability and independence with Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity by building or repairing a safe and secure place to call home. Families who partner with Northern Ocean Habitat build and repair their own homes alongside volunteers, pay an affordable mortgage or cost recovery and are grateful for your help.
