May 5 – Giving Tuesday NOW

Help Sustain Washington Revels on #GivingTuesdayNOW

In the face of COVID-19, Washington Revels is working hard to keep our community connected. On this special #GivingTuesday, we’ve partnered with the Catalogue for Philanthropy‘s Give Local Together campaign — and we need your help to reach our $5,000 fundraising goal.

There are two easy ways you can support Revels on May 5:

  • Donate via our GivingTuesday page
    • Give during one of our “Power Hours” on May 5 to help us reach the most individual donors and win a cash prize. Power Hours are from 12-1 PM and 8-9 PM.
    • Is Giving Tuesday not a good day for you? Early Giving is open, so you can make your gift today and help us reach our goal.
  • Email friends and/or post about our fundraiser on social media
    (using our ready-made text & photos!)

Your efforts will help Revels continue bringing people together by sharing traditions virtually when we can’t gather in person — and afterwards when we can!

Sharing Resources

Telling your friends why you support Washington Revels will help us reach so many more people than we ever could on our own. It only takes a minute to copy, paste and customize one of these posts:
