On Giving Tuesday on November, 27th, 2018, Facebook is partnering with PayPal, to match a total of up to $7 million in donations made on Facebook to eligible US-based 501(c)(3) nonprofits. And Lake Cares is eligible!
So with over 2100 active Facebook friends, we figure if even a small portion will share the $10 Challenge with their friends, and coupled with the possible Facebook/PayPal Match, it would truly meet the description of "It Takes a Community".
Donations will be matched dollar for dollar on a first-come, first-served basis and will run until it is out. So we are hoping to encourage people to hop onto Lake Cares Facebook page anytime after 8AM EST on Tuesday, November 27.
To be considered for the Match, we're using Facebook’s payment platform to process donations which means Facebook nor PayPal will not charge any fee—100% of the donations made at our Facebook Page will go directly to Lake Cares
Donations up to $250k per nonprofit and $20k per donor are eligible to be matched.
You can use any of the following payment methods to make donations on Facebook:
Credit cards: American Express, Discover, Mastercard, Visa and PayPal
