It's the final 60 hours of the year and our
Annual Fund Drive! Yesterday our
supporters were challenged on Twitter to donate $1,000 by tomorrow morning for a $1,000 match
Please help us meet the challenge by making your donation today at our
Annual Fund Drive page!
Here's how you can help us earn that match by tomorrow morning or before the end of 2016:
1) Donate by check or
online today. Contributions of
any amount are greatly appreciated!
2) Ask friends and family to contribute! We've
made it super simple - just print out our
and start asking, or spend a few minutes personalizing and
3) Ask your employer if they make matching donations or want to donate to a great cause!
We have so far received (or are expecting) matching donations from The Capital Group Companies Charitable Foundation, Disney,
Oaktree Capital Management,
McMaster-Carr, Microsoft, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Courthouse News Service, Expedia, Automatic Data Processing, Inc., Warner Brothers Entertainment, Inc., and SAP Software Solutions, all through the efforts and requests of our volunteers who work for those companies.
Once your employer, friends, and family know about
Reading to Kids, many will probably want to donate to us, and are looking for a
great cause to support before the end of the year -
we just need you to ask!
Note: If donating by check, please
make sure the check is dated on or before December 31,
2016. If donating by credit card, the
donation must be made on or before December 31, 2016.
