Q: When do I have to give my donation in order to qualify for the match?
A: Online donations must be given on #GivingTuesday, November 29. If you wish to send a check, simply email on November 29 to make a pledge, and mail your check within a couple days.
Q: What if the entire $15,000 isn’t donated?
