Three ways to help end homelessness this #GivingTuesday

Help us maximize our matching gift this Giving Tuesday, on December 3rd!
November 25, 2019

Interested in getting involved in our fundraising efforts? Supporters like you are invaluable in spreading the news of our work and bringing Built for Zero to every community in America. This Giving Tuesday, a generous donor will be matching all contributions up to $15,000!

Here are three ways that you can increase your impact this Giving Tuesday:

#1: Create a Facebook Fundraiser

Creating a Facebook Fundraiser makes your impact go further. It’s super easy! On your Facebook homepage, click the “Fundraisers” tab on the left hand column.

You’ll see this screen next. Select “Raise money for a nonprofit,” and type in Community Solutions. Or, go directly to this link to start setting up a fundraiser for Community Solutions. From there, create a fundraising goal that makes sense for you and your friends. You’ll personalize the fundraiser by explaining why you’re passionate about the work that we do (and make sure to remind everyone that every dollar raised will be matched!), and then you’re ready to post. Voila!

P.S.— Facebook Fundraisers are great because Facebook waives all processing fees, meaning all of your donation goes directly to Community Solutions. Plus, if you donate on Giving Tuesday, Facebook will match every donation, up to $7 million! 

#2: Designate Community Solutions on Amazon Smile 

Take advantage of Amazon’s giving program, When you shop at this link, Amazon donates 0.5% of your purchases to a nonprofit of your choice. Go to this link, sign into your Amazon account, and designate Community Solutions International as your chosen nonprofit. During all of your holiday shopping, make sure to shop at Amazon Smile, and each purchase will raise money effortlessly!   

#3: Make a Donation 

Want a different way to give? You can make a direct donation to Community Solutions here! Your gift will go twice as far this year— all donations up to $15,000 will be generously matched.

From the whole team at Community Solutions, thanks so much for your support, and Happy Holidays!
