In November we start to wind down the year and plan for the holiday season. It’s a time for shopping for that perfect gift, meals around the table with family and, hopefully, charitable giving. Giving Tuesday, which happens on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, is a global campaign to promote philanthropy. As part of our yearlong 10th Anniversary celebration, AWS Foundation is participating in Giving Tuesday with $110,000 in matching dollars.
We chose 11 nonprofit disability service providers, each to receive a dollar-for-dollar match up to $10,000! These organizations are: Arc of Noble County, Arc of LaGrange, Arc of Wabash, Bi-County Services (Bluffton), Carey Services (Marion), Easterseals Arc of Northeast Indiana, Life Adult Day Academy (Fort Wayne), Passages (Columbia City), Pathfinder Services (Huntington), RISE, Inc. (Angola), Turnstone (Fort Wayne).
To qualify for matching funds, donations must be:
- Given on Tuesday, November 28th 2017 (either in person or electronically)
- New or increased donations. This means if you have given to your chosen organization before, only those incremental dollars will be matched.
These organizations change the lives of individuals with disabilities in Northeast Indiana and we want to help them. This is your chance to give to a new organization or increase your annual donation. Give what you can, every dollar helps.
