Matching Opportunity for #GivingTuesday on December 3, 2013

On December 3, 2013, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary will participate in #GivingTuesday to boost gift-giving to the seminary.  #GivingTuesday is one day of giving that kicks off the giving season. This year it is on Tuesday, December 3rd following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. This is the second year for this national day of philanthropy.  In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday and online shippers participate in Cyber Monday, #Giving Tuesday allows people to utilize the power of social media and to create a national moment dedicated to giving.
