Our December fundraiser was a success, with 348 donors contributing just over $950,000. Supporters leveraged a variety of matching opportunities, including employer matching programs, WeTrust Spring’s Ethereum-matching campaign, Facebook’s Giving Tuesday event, and professional poker players Dan Smith, Aaron Merchak, and Martin Crowley’s Double Up Drive, expertly facilitated by Raising for Effective Giving.
In all, matching donations accounted for just over one third of the funds raised. Thank you to everyone who contributed!
