Giving Tuesday 2019

GivingTuesday, taking place December 3rd, is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage giving and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Every year, on GivingTuesday, millions of people across the globe mobilize to show up, give back, and change their communities. The goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day, and touches every person on the planet.

Our Goal – $5,000

Friends of Golden Pond has secured a $5,000 matching gift. This means that the impact of your gift will be doubled up to $5,000! Should we meet our goal, we will have added a full $10,000 towards our down payment and made significant progress towards owning our camp!

#GivingTuesday isn’t just about fundraising, it’s about communities banding together and giving of their time, power, skills, expertise, and resources. If each of us gives just $25, together, we can build a better world.

Making a Splash

If we meet this goal, anyone who contributes $25 or more is welcome to join the Friends of Golden Pond Executive Committee (President Megan Roberts, Treasurer Ann Dunlavy, and Secretary Joan Geleskie) in jumping in Lake Louise to celebrate (provided the lake is not frozen solid).

When you send your contributions in, be sure to tell us why you are willing to jump in the frigid water!
