Created in response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday (Dec. 1) is a global day of giving. Now in its ninth year, #GivingTuesday is a day for families, businesses, communities, students and others to come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and GIVE.
On Tuesday, December 1, #GivingTuesday, donate to the Alzheimer’s Association, and help us raise funds for research and local care and support services. #GivingTuesday is about ordinary people coming together doing extraordinary things. No gift is too small.
Here are just a few ways that you can support the Alzheimer’s Association locally here in North Carolina this #GivingTuesday:
Give Financial Support
The Alzheimer’s Association is part of a global organization, working to advance care, support and research across the world. From face-to-face support to online education programs and promising worldwide research initiatives, the money you give makes a difference in the lives of those facing Alzheimer’s. Learn how your donations are used. Make a Donation.
This year, Facebook is matching up to $7 million in funds raised through Facebook Fundraisers. Support the Association by starting a #GivingTuesday Facebook fundraiser today, and CVS Health will kick off your efforts with a $10 donation. In addition, donations made to your fundraiser on #GivingTuesday (Dec. 1) are eligible for a match from Facebook. The funds you raise help to provide Alzheimer’s care and support and accelerate critical research. (Please note this match opportunity has restrictions and does not apply to Facebook fundraisers connected to Walk to End Alzheimer’s or The Longest Day.)
Give to a Walk Team
#GivingTuesday is a great day to make a final fundraising appeal to your supporters for your Walk to End Alzheimer’s efforts. Walk day may have come and gone, but the fight to #EndALZ continues. All the teams around the chapter are still raising walk funds, so send out your #GivingTuesday appeal.
