Thank you to all of our generous donors who made Facebook campaigns, donated to our #GivingTree for #Giving Tuesday, and gave through the mail and telephone!
Giving is catching on! Globally, online giving was up by more than $100 million, reaching $511 million and contributing to a $1.97 billion total estimate of giving! Since the bulk of our revenue comes through workplace donations, this campaign was focused more on creating awareness of UWSEMO and Giving Tuesday than bringing in funds. We have several people still collecting, but we are pleased to report that Giving Tuesday donations more than covered the small amount we spent on promoting the campaign.
Our #GivingTree will be up and available for donations through the end of the year. Again,
thanks to all of you who donate year-round to help lift families and individuals out of poverty through the United Way network of agencies and programs.
