Are You Ready For Facebook’s #GivingTuesday Matching Campaign?

Did you know Facebook Is Matching Donations On #GivingTuesday this year? They are partnering with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to match donations made through Facebook on #GivingTuesday (November 28) up to $2 million.

Ceci Dadisman wrote an article for ArtsHacker with all of the need-to-know info about the project along with pointers on what you’ll need to do in order to make sure you’re using Facebook the correct way to qualify for matching funds (emphasis added).

…this doesn’t apply to funds that you raise via a link to the donate page on your website; the money has to be donated through Facebook’s Charitable Giving Tools. In order to use them, you need to set them up with Facebook and it does require some paperwork to complete.

Facebook Is Matching Donations On #GivingTuesday, Here’s What You Need To Know

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
