Keys for Haiti Matching Gift Challenge
Double your year-end donation to BLUME Haiti by joining our Keys for Haiti Matching Gift Challenge!
Last week on #GivingTuesday we launched our 2nd Annual Keys for Haiti campaign. Our goal was to reach $4,000 in new and increased donations to be matched by our board. Amazingly, we reached our goal in ONE DAY!!! Can you believe it? We never thought this would happen!
We are so touched by this incredible display of support for music education in Haiti.
In total, on #GivingTuesday
- We raised $6,134 from 99 different people, 83 of whom were first-time donors!
- We had new, or increased gifts from existing donors totaled $4,519 which means that
- We surpassed our $4,000 match goal in less than 24 hours!
As many of you know, the Gates Foundation also provided matching gifts up to $2 million on #GivingTuesday. We are very hopeful that BLUME Haiti will receive some of this matching money, but we will not find out for several weeks. Thank you to everyone who donated early to help us take advantage of that opportunity.
In 2016 we launched our first-ever matching gift campaign - Keys For Haiti. The resounding success inspired our board members to up the ante for 2017, increasing their matching pledges to $4,000! Between Nov. 28 (Giving Tuesday) and Dec. 31 up all new and increased donations to BLUME Haiti up to $4,000 will be matched 100%!
What does this mean? It means that your donor dollars go even farther to support young musicians in Haiti. For example, if you are a new donor, your donation of $50 will be matched with an additional $50, putting a total of $100 towards BLUME Haiti’s mission! If you’ve donated to BLUME Haiti before, any increase over your last gift will be matched. So if you gave $25 last time, and you give $50 this time, your new contribution will qualify for an additional $25 in matching funds, which means that $50 becomes $75!
Don’t miss this opportunity to double your donor dollars and provide meaningful musical experiences to children throughout Haiti.
