Be the Force this Giving Tuesday

Show your support for your local USO and be the force behind service members and their families living and working in our community by getting involved in Giving Tuesday. Occurring the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday has grown into a worldwide phenomenon where everyday philanthropists like you commit to making a change and supporting causes near and dear to one’s heart. On Tuesday, November 27, 2018, we need you to #BeTheForce.

How You Can Help:

1. Host a Fundraiser: In support of #GivingTuesday on November 27, 2018, Facebook is partnering with PayPal to match up to $7 million in donations made on Facebook to eligible US-based 501©(3) nonprofits.

  • The match applies to fundraisers for nonprofit organizations, including birthday fundraisers and Donate buttons. Fundraisers for personal causes aren’t eligible to receive the match.
  • The matching dollars are available to any US-based nonprofit that can receive donations made on Facebook. If you’re located outside the United States and want to fundraise for an eligible US-based nonprofit, donations to your fundraiser are eligible to be matched. Donations up to $250k per nonprofit and $20k per donor are eligible to be matched.
  • Facebook and PayPal will match donations starting at 8am EST on November 27 and continue matching donations to nonprofits until the $7M match runs out.

Get started by visiting our page, Facebook.com/USOHRCV and clicking the Fundraisers tab on the left navigational column. Use #USOHRCV so we can see your post!

2. Host a supply drive for your nearest center: In preparation for the large volume of service members traversing our airport locations during the busy holiday travel season, donations of non-perishable single serve snacks and refreshments are needed! In addition to snacks, everyday items such as trash bags, cleaning supplies, ziplock bags, toiletries and more are needed. Contact your nearest USO center for more information!

3. Make A Donation: visit HRCV.USO.org and click the red DONATE button to make your gift, or mail a check to USOHRCV, PO Box 8097, Norfolk, VA 23503

Thank you for being a force behind service members and their families in our communities!
