For many, the true meaning of the holidays rests not in what we receive in presents, but in what we give to others, especially those in need. #GivingTuesday was started in 2012, and is one way the nonprofit and online communities have worked together to promote charitable giving during the holiday season.
At IT4Causes, we encourage everyone to think about their favorite causes, and to consider donating to them during the holidays. Obviously, we’d like you to think about donating or pledging to us so that we can magnify your impact with:
- Matching dollars from Flashpoint Fund ($6300 in matches remaining),
- Leveraging with 5-6 hours of skilled IT volunteer efforts with the Project Management time purchased with a $50 donation, and
- Lasting benefits to our partner agencies, where better IT means leaders and staff have more time to spend on their core mission.
You can also commit to helping us by completing a volunteer form.
Other great causes include these great agencies:

Whatever causes you choose to support, crank up your holiday spirit by supporting others this #GivingTuesday!
