UMC #GivingTuesday is Dec. 1!
On Dec. 1, United Methodists will once again come together to support the work of Advance projects and missionaries on UMC #GivingTuesday. And once again, every gift made online through The Advance at www.umcmission.org/give on Dec. 1, 2015 will be matched up to $1 milion.* The missionary who receives the highest amount of online donations on UMC #GivingTuesday will be able to direct $10,000 to an Advance project of his/her choice!
The theme for the 2015 UMC #Giving Tuesday campaign is “Activate Love. Transform Lives. Change the World.”
Help kick off this event by creating your own team to support a project that is working in an area you care about, such as hunger and poverty, education, or social justice. For a complete list of projects you and your team can support, visit The Advance, or download and share UMC #GivingTuesday resources.
*Global Ministries will allocate matching funds dollar for dollar up to the first $1 million in gifts to Advance projects received online on Dec. 1, 2015, between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. CT. A maximum of $2,500 per individual gift to a project will be dispersed as matching funds. A project may receive a maximum of $25,000 in matching funds.
