#GivePlay this Giving Tuesday
November 20, 2020
This has been a tough year, but in the midst of the pandemic, Civic Park was able to give our community a safe place to play.
We are excited to open the giving season with a way for you to help us continue to lift the spirits of our community. On GivingTuesday Civic Park will join the global movement to help people and organizations transform their communities. Our #Give Play campaign will help us finish Phase 1 construction at Civic Park. We are so close! There are several ways you can help.
First, the McKenzie Oaks Ranch Fund of Oregon Community Foundation is matching $1 for every $2 donated. For every $20 you give, we will receive $10 from the fund up to $1 million.
A second way you can give play is to set your alarm for 4:45 AM to be ready for the $7 million Facebook challenge, which begins at 5 AM. Facebook will match up to $100,000 given by our donors. This is open to non-profits nationwide, so the competition is fierce. It’s key to set your alarm and be ready at 5 AM!
If you need further incentives, our Giving Tuesday #GivePlay campaign will have three virtual raffles. Everyone who donates $25 or more will be entered to win special prizes, including gift cards from Capella Market, Viking Braggot, and Cornucopia.
This is your chance to make a difference and lift your spirits, too! Help us reach our goal of $25,000 to improve the health of our children, ensure equitable access to recreation, and strengthen our community.
