"Be Social" About supporting LEap on #GivingTuesday
Starting at 5 am PST, on November 27, 2018 (#GivingTuesday), Facebook and PayPal will join forces to match all donations—up to $250k per nonprofit—until their $7 million match runs out! They will also cover all processing fees so that 100% of each donation goes to LEAP Learning Center.
Perhaps the most exciting part of the #GivingTuesday campaign on Facebook is that you can choose to DONATE to LEAP and/or RAISE MONEY for LEAP by posting a fundraiser for LEAP on your Facebook page.
The easiest way to post a fundraiser for LEAP on your Facebook timeline is to simply visit our LEAP Learning Center - Tustin Facebook page, and click "Share" under our Facebook #GivingTuesday fundraiser. To personalize it, you can add a message at the top of the fundraiser on your timeline about your connection to LEAP and why our mission resonates with you.
To create your own fundraiser for LEAP, click here and follow the steps below (it only takes a few seconds to set up but please know that once you start creating the fundraiser, it will automatically publish to your timeline—you cannot save as a draft and publish later, however, you can go back later and edit it, if you wish):
Click the "Create a Fundraiser" button
Click "Raise Money"
Enter LEAP Learning Center and click "Create Now" and then "Get Started"
Facebook will give you the option to "Invite Friends"if you would like to make some (or all) of your friends more aware of this fundraiser...or you can skip this step and simply post to your timeline only
You can click the "...More" tab from your fundraiser and select "Edit Fundraiser" if you would like to change the cover photo, or fundraiser details such as your goal amount and when the fundraiser will end
Will you join us in raising money for LEAP on #GivingTuesday? You can even LEAP ahead and start raising money today—and just post a reminder (or "share" our fundraiser again) on the morning of November 27th to let friends and family know that Facebook and PayPal will be matching donations that day! Feel free to share a message from the heart on why you're LEAPING in to Make a Difference—or copy our story below:
“LEAP Learning Center is a 501(c)(3) Tustin-based nonprofit that provides a free after-school Reading Intervention Program to 132 students, in first through fifth grade, at four Title I schools in the Tustin Unified School District. LEAP's Reading Intervention Program was specifically designed to addresses the acute and growing literacy needs among low-income elementary school students, especially English Learners. In the four Title I schools that LEAP serves, 70% of low-income students, and 90% of English Learners, are reading significantly below California state standards for English Language Arts and Literacy. LEAP is committed to, and operates under, the belief that all children can learn—and the LEAP Reading Intervention Program is making a profound difference! Last year, LEAP students achieved an average growth of four reading levels, and one student achieved a total growth of twelve reading levels! What's more, most LEAP students are reading at, or approaching, their grade-level reading goals by the end of the school year. Your gift today, in any amount, will enable LEAP to purchase books for their library, student and tutor notebooks, white boards, paper, pencils, and other much-needed supplies to help LEAP students become confident and successful readers. I am so thankful for any support you can provide!”
You can also spread the word about LEAP on your Twitter and Instagram accounts and encourage friends and loved ones to donate to LEAP through your fundraiser, or at www.facebook.com/Leap-Learning-Center-Tustin-671426619652155/.
