Kansas Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom (KFAC) will once again participate in #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.
Occurring this year on Nov. 27, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in impacting their communities and states by giving back. This is the third year KFAC has participated in the event.
Central National Bank and Farm Credit Associations of Kansas will join KFAC this year as match donors in the #GivingTuesday event. For every dollar donated by individuals or businesses, a 100% match will be made between Central National Bank and Farm Credit Associations of Kansas.
“We are so fortunate for the generosity of Central National Bank and Farm Credit Associations of Kansas and that they see the value in partnering with us to match every dollar on #GivingTuesday,” said Cathy Musick, KFAC executive director. “It’s a great way for donors to leverage and stretch their donation a little further.”
Individuals and businesses interested in donating on Nov. 27 can do so by visiting givinggrid.com/kfac2018. Donations may be made at this site or by mailing a check with “GivingTuesday” in the memo line. All donations must be received by Dec. 1st to qualify for the match dollars.
