In an effort to provide immediate aid, Giving Tuesday announced #GivingTuesdayNow, which took place on May 5, 2020. #GivingTuesdayNow was a chance for people around the world to stand together in unity and use their individual power of generosity to help nonprofits in need.
In partnership with Giving Tuesday, GoFundMe Charity launched our #GivingTuesdayNow Match Program to give every nonprofit the opportunity to rally support for its cause in the face of COVID-19. To contribute to your impact, we made $1,000 matching grants to the first 350 qualified nonprofits that raised at least $1,000 on GoFundMe Charity. We also gave an additional $50,000 in grants on May 5, the day of Giving Tuesday Now.
The incredible effort from individuals to help nonprofits through this program raised over $8.6M. There were more than 50,000 donations to almost 4,000 different campaigns.
