PinRaise App, Donation Match Make Giving Tuesday More Rewarding for Fullerton College Foundation

FULLERTON, CA, November 22, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — This year, giving back to the Fullerton College Foundation can be easier and more rewarding (for everyone!) with just a few clicks of an app and our donation-match program on the global day dedicated to giving, known as Giving Tuesday, November 29.

The idea is easy: Just download the PinRaise app on your smartphone, select the Fullerton College Foundation as your designated charity, and sign up to become a gift-match donor for Giving Tuesday. PinRaise is an app designed to promote charitable services by matching up individuals with a “Business with Heart ” and worthy charities. When you use the PinRaise app for your purchases or services at one of the participating restaurants and businesses that give back on Tuesday, Nov. 29, you can raise double the money for the Foundation.

Holiday spending grows

For many of us, seeing “November” on the calendar immediately triggers that desire to start holiday shopping. That’s why Giving Tuesday is so important, and why the date is so key.

“During the holiday season, there are two popular days for commerce: Black Friday and Cyber Monday,” said Huffington Post. “When you add in Small Business Saturday, two becomes three. And commerce is certainly important. But there were no days for service projects and giving back — the two things that are most associated with the period from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day. Giving Tuesday has come along and filled that void. In just 4 short years, it has taken the world by storm, and evolved into a phenomenon. The online space has emerged as a viable option for anyone looking to fundraise for charitable initiatives.”

So does giving

According to the Giving Tuesday site, the day “kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.” And the day has resonated with the public; In 2015, more than 45,000 organizations in 71 different countries were involved, and more than 700,000 individuals gave, raising more than $116,000,000.
