EA Giving Tuesday
Donation matching initiative
Coming up on Tuesday, December 1, 2020
Total amounts pledged
Giving Tuesday 2020 is fast approaching—join us!
EA Giving Tuesday organizes people around a shared goal: to direct Facebook’s matching funds to highly effective nonprofits, by donating quickly on Giving Tuesday. This year, up to $7 million USD in Facebook matching funds are available.
The EA Giving Tuesday team supports both donors and highly effective nonprofits, to make it as easy as possible to participate in this unique matching opportunity.
What are the matching program details this year? Facebook is contributing $7 million USD in matching funds, with the first $2 million donations matched at 100%, and (we believe) the next $50 million donations matched at 10%. Facebook will match donations of up to $20,000 USD per donor and $100,000 USD per US nonprofit. The 100% match will begin on December 1, 2020, at 8:00 am EST, and will end seconds later. We expect that donating fast will be especially important this year, but we have new strategies planned to support donors.
How has it gone in previous years? Between 2017, 2018, and 2019, hundreds of people coordinated by EA Giving Tuesday donated $2.2 million to highly effective nonprofits, and $1 million of those donations were matched by Facebook.
Who organizes EA Giving Tuesday? The EA Giving Tuesday team and Rethink Charity organize this project. EA Giving Tuesday is motivated by effective altruism (EA), and many people in the EA community help us immensely.
