Once you’ve made it through the long holiday weekend, it will be time to start thinking about how you can give back to your community on Nov. 27, #GivingTuesday.
If you’re looking to maximize your impact, consider making a donation or setting up a fundraiser on your Facebook page in support of KNKX. Facebook is partnering with PayPal to match up to $7 million in total donations to eligible nonprofits, made through the Facebook giving platform on #GivingTuesday! The offer starts bright and early at 5 a.m. PST on Nov. 27, and donations will be matched dollar for dollar on a first-come, first-served basis until the matching pool runs out.
To add even more incentive, #GivingTuesday also marks the beginning of the KNKX Winter Drive. For every $100 donated by listeners between #GivingTuesday and midnight on Dec. 6, KNKX will fill a backpack with two days’ worth of nutritious, kid-friendly food for the Northwest Harvest Three Squares program. These backpacks are distributed in high-needs public schools throughout Washington state, providing a reliable source of food for children living in food insecure households.
What could be better than a generous matching gift, a meaningful community partnership, and the chance to support essential, independent public media culminating on one glorious day? We hope you’ll consider joining in on this global day of philanthropy by supporting all the KNKX programs you love on #GivingTuesday.
