MATCHING FUNDS! We have $60,000 in matching funds, and an additional $4,000 in matching funds for FIRST-TIME GIFTS (made by new donors) on November 28 only. We’re still looking for additional matching funds, so stay tuned for updates!
What is #GivingTuesday? It is a global day dedicated to giving back. It happens the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday and is an opportunity for cities, churches, families and individuals around the world to come together and celebrate generosity.
Mission:Dignity has participated in #GivingTuesday the past three years (2014-2016). Thanks to your generous support, on those three days alone, we raised over $102,000. Gifts ranged in size from $5 to $5,000. And 100% of each gift went directly to a retired SBC pastor, worker or widow in critical financial need.
Double the impact of your gift! We hope to have matching funds available to double the impact of your gift on November 28 only. If you, or someone you know, would be interested in offering matching funds, contact us at MissionDignity@GuideStone.org.
