Here is a great opportunity!

If you donate to PortSide via our fundraiser on Facebook tomorrow #GivingTuesday after 8:00am, it will be matched by a PayPal & Facebook program* that starts at 8:00am eastern time until the matching funds run out.

Last year, capturing such a match meant you had to donate before 10:00am.

Please show us some love at 8:00am and double your gift to PortSide! 

Only donations via Facebook are eligible for this match. If you are not on Facebook and want to donate, it's a snap via our webpage DONATE.

Your support will advance PortSide programs such as:

  • Our new partnership with PS 676, "The Red Hook Neighborhood School," a public school serving public housing students from Kindergarten to 5th grade.
  • TankerTime when you can enjoy a maritime staycation on our deck with books, the ArtTable, TankerTots play area, and the beloved hammocks. "Thanks for this oasis," said one mother. During SecondSundays evenings, TankerTime is a lively scene with a music jam and BYO dining.
  • Our African American Maritime Heritage program which brought the historic ship AMISTAD here twice this summer, and created a History Challenge for Red Hook 5th and 6th graders

And so much more.

Thanks for your support!



*Donations up to $250k per nonprofit and $20k per donor are eligible to be matched.Facebook and PayPal will match donations starting at 5am PST on November 27 and continue matching donations to nonprofits until the $7M match runs out. more info on the PayPal & Facebook program here
