#GivingTuesday: Up to $1k in Matching Funds

2016-gt-logo-wdate1MFHS has some exciting news! In honor of #GivingTuesday, Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will contribute up to $1 million to Facebook fundraisers. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will provide $500,000 in matching funds, up to $1,000 per Facebook fundraiser, and Facebook will waive up to $500,000 of fees on all donations.

How can you help?

As a supporter of Maternal & Family Health Services, we’d be honored if you would take this opportunity to reflect upon your commitment to our work by creating a Facebook fundraiser. Your fundraiser could help fund up to $1,000 toward our cause. Creating a fundraiser is easy.

Don’t have time to make your own fundraiser? You can donate to MFHS through this fundraiser tomorrow and we will still benefit from the match gift: https://www.facebook.com/donate/10100741562195815/
