$7 Million Match Waiting for us to Take Action
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and so is Giving Tuesday – a global day dedicated to charitable giving. November 27, 2018.
Asante Africa Foundation has an exciting campaign planned for Giving Tuesday — one that will support our annual appeal currently under way. You may have already made your annual appeal gift (if so, we THANK YOU), but here is another opportunity to spread the word about Asante Africa Foundation with your family and friends.
We are asking you to set up a Facebook fundraiser in support of Asante Africa Foundation.
- Creating a Facebook fundraiser is simple, and it is a great opportunity to connect your family and friends to Asante Africa Foundation and tell them about this organization that you are passionate about.
- Facebook does not charge any fees to nonprofits for these fundraisers so 100% of the funds raised will go straight to Asante Africa Foundation.
An added bonus is that there will once again be a Giving Tuesday match on Facebook. This year, Facebook is partnering with PayPal to match up to $7 million in donations made on Facebook, starting at 8 am EDT on Giving Tuesday. LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PAYPAL – FACEBOOK MATCH
Our goal is to get as many supporters as possible to launch their Facebook fundraiser the day before Giving Tuesday – on Nov 26th – so that we can take advantage of the PayPal match.
If you have any questions or need help setting up your Facebook fundraiser, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org

WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?
Since 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy. Whether it’s some of your time, a donation, social media interaction, or a simple act of kindness, your contribution will help with our mission to give children in East Africa the benefit of a great education.
#GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities and the world at large. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the season of giving.
Help us give students the supplies, education, and support they need to feel confident and achieve their dreams.
WHERE DOES MY DONATION GO?
Your donation will help support students, teachers, families and communities, across Kenya and Tanzania. Your gift will give children financial support for education, training for teachers, tools for the classroom, hygiene products and health skills, mentorship and business workshops.
“After the LEI Conference I was inspired to start a eucalyptus tree farming business. So far I have planted 10,100 trees.”
“Every child has the potential to create a future for himself. What they need is the right support system and the right skills. This is what a good teacher should focus on providing.”
OTHER WAYS TO GET INVOLVED:
Whether you come together with your family, community, company, or your organization, you can find a way to give back and create change in the places that need it the most.
