Support Buckman on #GivingTuesday!

#GivingTuesday, the largest worldwide day of giving, is now in its sixth year. After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday falls on November 28 this year, as the philanthropic response we all need after the mayhem of holiday sales. Set out to support your favorite organizations, including your favorite elementary school!

This #GivingTuesday, the Buckman Foundation will launch its Year End Ask campaign, an annual campaign wherein Foundation leadership turns to the Buckman community to directly ask for donations. As part of the campaign, members of the Buckman community are asked to participate in the Buckman matching gift challenge: if 75 contributors step up to the plate to donate at whatever level they are able, a group of Buckman families has agreed to give an additional $8,000! Donating is easy: head to All Hands Raised (select Buckman from the drop-down menu) or drop off a check in the Foundation mailbox. Grandparents, relatives, neighbors and friends are all invited to join in our Year-End efforts, so please share this news with them!

The Buckman PTA has also launched a new playground project, and has partnered with Columbia Credit Union to raise the initial funds. From now until December 15, stop by their Goat Blocks location (950 SE 10th Ave) and enter your email address as a vote for Buckman. On #GivingTuesday, votes count double; if you mark yourself as “Checked-in” on Facebook, your vote counts triple! Columbia Credit Union has generously offered to donate up to $10,000 to this project, but we need enough votes to make it happen! Participation is FREE and only takes a minute of your time.
