What are three things that can help build a stage for success? To help ensure lifelong learning? To build a community that supports it’s library and learning in all forms?
We are thrilled to announce that we have $10,500 dollars in matching funds for the 2017 Big Day of Giving. Generous donors from what we call our Leadership Circle are leading the way by giving their donations as matching funds to make your donor dollars more powerful.
What does this mean?
At the stroke of midnight on May 4, 2017 if you look at our dedicated donation page on the Big Day of Giving site there will be a section toward the top of the page that will show our total amount of matching funds, currently $10,500.
As each donation is processed, it will be matched, up to the total of our fund. The little ticker will count down as funds are processed.
So if you are watching the ticker it will decrease as funds are pulled from the match fund and added to the donation total on the leaderboards.
Your $25, or $100 or …. gets doubled!
Once we receive $10,500 in new donations, the match fund will be at 0, and our donations would show $21,000! Powerful!
Plus, when donors use their Golden 1 Credit Union debit or credit card for their Big Day of Giving donation, their contribution goes even further. Golden 1 will proportionately match up to $50,000 to the nonprofits its members donate to online at bigdayofgiving.org on May 4!
So, join us in giving a huge thank you to our Leadership Circle Donors and helping us earn those matching funds as quickly as we can to put us at the top of the leaderboard this year.
Since there will be so many great activities happening on May 4, you may want to take advantage of this year’s cool new tool and schedule your donation in advance, a true power move!
