#GivingTuesday is here!

Support the Straus Historical Society Today!

What is #GivingTuesday?

According to www.givingtuesday.org, "#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy."

Exciting opportunity!

The Straus Historical Society has a very exciting and unique opportunity right now! An anonymous donor has pledged to match up to $15,000 in donations. There are two ways to qualify to have your donation matched:

  1. If you did not donate last year, your donation will be matched two to one. Whatever you give will be doubled! If, for example, you give $100 this year, SHS will receive an additional $200, doubling what you donated. You will, in essence, be donating $300!
  2. If you did donate last year, and are able to increase you donation, the excess will be matched one to one. If, for example, you donated $100 last year, and choose to increase your 2015 donation to $200, SHS will receive an addition $100 to match the extra that was donated in excess. You will, in essence, be donating $300!

The offer of this matching gift expires on December 31, 2015. Please consider making a contribution today so that we can make the most out of this amazing opportunity.
