Will You Give on #GivingTuesday?

October 18, 2016

After indulging on Thanksgiving, shopping on Black Friday, and searching on Cyber Monday, we celebrate our community on a day of generosity. #GivingTuesday is November 29, and for the third year, Center for Independent Futures is ready to see how one day can help us grow.

All of the funds raised on #GivingTuesday will directly support the growth of full lives, new connections, and expanded opportunities for individuals with disabilities and their families. In the coming weeks, we’ll share stories of how we grow, together, and work toward a more inclusive, stronger community.

Thanks to a generous opportunity from The Coleman Foundation, new and increased donations given online on #GivingTuesday will be matched up to a total of $10,000, meaning your contribution could go twice as far to support the growth of our community. Every dollar of gifts from new donors will be matched. For returning donors, The Coleman Foundation will double any increase of your #GivingTuesday contribution above your largest gift in 2015.

To learn how to make sure your gift gets matched on November 29, contact Elizabeth at (847) 328-2044. Each gift, no matter what size, makes a difference.

Last year, the Center for Independent Futures community raised more than $21,000 in 24 hours on #GivingTuesday. Will you help us do it again? Mark your calendar today to take part in this global day of giving! With your support, we’ll continue growing our community, this year and every year.
