During the 1:1 Fund’s last quarterly campaign of 2018, Giving Tuesday, 13 CSA programs raised more than $85,000 from approximately 330 donors to fund incentives for young students to save for college. With matching dollars from the 1:1 Fund, the total amount raised came to almost $118,000. These totals marked another strong Giving Tuesday for the 1:1 Fund. In comparison, 1:1 Fund partners raised nearly $70,000 during 2016’s Giving Tuesday and almost $97,000 during 2017’s one-day campaign.
Giving Tuesday capped off another great year for 1:1 Fund partners, who raised more than $260,000 in online donations in 2018. These donations go directly to fund incentives that help children and youth from low-income families save for postsecondary education.
Thank you for donating to all our 1:1 Fund partners last year, and we look forward to another great year ahead.
