GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for their favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday as an opportunity to give back during the holiday season.
Donations can be made to whichever campaign you choose, because we believe that you should have the opportunity to choose which area you would like to support with your hard earned dollars. Choose from:
Support people in Aspen's programs who need a little extra help with relief of utility and grocery expenses this winter.
Support Aspen's 1000 Voices Hub. A place that provides comfort and security; a place to find support.
Get families out of homelessness and into sustainable housing.
Support children, youth and families through some of life's most challenging moments.
From November 29th through to Tuesday, December 3rd, the first $10,000 in online donations will be matched thanks to Aspen's Board of Directors! We started with $5,000 in matching dollars from our Board Chair and thanks to the generosity of the community and the gifts we have already received our Board of Directors has increased our matching amount to $10,000!
**UPDATE** We have reached our maximum matching amount!! Thanks to everyone who has donated so far, the first $10,000 in donations has officially been matched DOLLAR for DOLLAR, bringing us over the $20,000 mark! Help us get to $30,000 before end of day Tuesday!
