Best Giving Tuesday by Far
December 3, 2018
December message from Executive Director Debbie Green
I am happy to share with our entire community that this year was our most successful #Giving Tuesday by far!
We more than doubled our revenue from last year, raising over $3,200 for PIC. We also increased the total number of gifts we received, with over 42 individuals donating to PIC on #GivingTuesday 2018!
These gifts will help PIC continue as the vibrant community that it has been for the last 40 years.
Each year we have tried something a little different on #Giving Tuesday in order to engage our community, raise some money, and as importantly, raise awareness about PIC.
This year, our “something new” was to directly raise money on Facebook. We set up a #GivingTuesday fundraiser for PIC and added a donate now button to our Facebook page. We also saw a few personal fundraisers pop up for PIC, one organized by a staff member that raised over $1,000!
We had participation from current families, friends who have kept in touch via Facebook but have not donated before, and alum who commented about how PIC helped them as a young family.
#Giving Tuesday kicks off our annual appeal each year, and we hope to keep this momentum going!
The money we raise through our end-of year fundraising helps us remain a strong community where children receive the highest quality start, every individual and all types of families feel welcome, we retain great teachers, maintain old facilities, and enroll families of ALL economic circumstances.
It helps PIC stay PIC!
I wish you all a season of gratitude and of peace. And from all of us at PIC, best wishes for a happy and healthy new year ahead!
Thank you for entrusting your child in our care.
