How'd This All Come to Be & How Does It Work?

Thank Facebook, Gates Foundation, & Network for Good!

Facebook announced: "On #GivingTuesday, Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will be matching up to $2 million of funds raised on Facebook for US nonprofits. Facebook is also waiving its fees for donations made to nonprofits on Facebook this #GivingTuesday. Donations to nonprofits made through Facebook’s charitable giving tools on November 28th will be matched up to $50,000 per nonprofit or $1,000 per fundraiser or donate button, until the $2 million in matching funds run out. The match will begin at 8AM EST (5AM PST). ... All matched funds will be paid out to nonprofits through Network for Good’s donor advised fund."

Will I Still Get a Donation Receipt?

Facebook alerts Jesus' Economy about all donations. If you give to Jesus' Economy via Facebook's donation options, we will send you a donation receipt in early 2018.
