UMC #GivingTuesday set for Nov. 29

11/1/2016

Mark your calendars!

UMC #GivingTuesday is Nov. 29. Last year, thanks to the extravagant generosity of United Methodists, $2.8 million was raised on UMC #GivingTuesday.

UMC #GivingTuesday is part of an international movement to extend the spirit of giving thanks into the Advent season. It offers an opportunity to start off the holiday season by giving instead of receiving.

UMC #GivingTuesday offers United Methodists a way to participate by supporting projects through The Advance.

Join in the UMC #GivingTuesday campaign by visiting the Giving Tuesday resource page at www.umcmission.org/giving-tuesday/resources.

Donation matches

The Advance remains committed to sustaining a strong foundation that allows projects and missionaries to build relationships and empower ministries.

In the past, the Advance was fortunate to offer matching funds to motivate giving. While matching funds will not be available this year, The Advance continues to allocate 100 percent of all giving to the designated project and missionary with the administrative overhead covered through apportionments.

This Advent, encourage your congregation to “Give Light, Give Love and Give Life through the Advance at: www.umcmission.org/give
