#GivingTuesday 2019


Make an Impact on #GivingTuesday: December 3, 2019

#GivingTuesday transforms how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season and inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media to create a global moment dedicated to giving around the world.
This holiday season, help support the Health, Education and Financial Stability of every person in Frederick County. There are many ways you can make a difference! Direct your contribution to one of the many aspects of our work such as VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance), Summer Serve, Stuff the Bus, Day of Action and more!
When families have their basic needs met, they can achieve more—like becoming healthy, educated and financially stable. With your support, we can ensure more people in our community can access the resources they need this winter and beyond.

Here is how you can participate in #GivingTuesday 2019:


1.) MAKE AN ONLINE DONATION to United Way of Frederick County.
2.) CREATE A FACEBOOK FUNDRAISER for United Way of Frederick County and share it with your friends on #GivingTuesday! To help raise awareness of charitable causes and amplify donors' generosity, Facebook will match eligible donations up to the full match amount that are made on Facebook during Giving Tuesday 2019. Facebook will match up to a total of $100,000 per nonprofit organization.
3.) LIKE US ON FACEBOOK to follow all of the fun #GivingTuesday action and learn how contributions help make a difference in the lives of the 39 percent of families who struggle to afford basic needs in Frederick County. Like, share and engage with us!
