Thanks to your support, we met our #GivingTuesday goal!

Not only did we reach our goal of raising $20,000 in 24 hours, we exceeded it with an amazing $21,861! Even more exciting, all new and increased donations will be matched by our #GivingTuesday partner, The Coleman Foundation.

We want to send an incredibly heartfelt thank you to everyone who took the time to donate and spread the word yesterday.

Over 160 people came together to give to Search on #GivingTuesday. Your generosity inspired others to give back! Together, we proved that when everyday people join together in the spirit of giving back, we can accomplish extraordinary things. Feels good, doesn't it?

Thank you again for your support.

About the #GivingTuesday campaign:
On Tuesday, November 29, 2016, Search and joined together on #GivingTuesday for a global day of giving! Our goal was to raise $20,000 in 24 hours. Our #GivingTuesday partner, The Coleman Foundation, matched all new and increased donations dollar for dollar, up to $10,000.


What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. Following Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, Tuesday, November 29, 2016 has been designated as a day for charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world to come together to celebrate generosity and to give.

You don't need to be a millionaire or world leader to give back. #GivingTuesday was created with the belief that when everyday people join together in the spirit of giving back extraordinary things can happen.

The Match
Search, Inc. has been invited by The Coleman Foundation to participate in its #GivingTuesday Matching Grants Program. In support of this goal, the Foundation will offer a dollar-for-dollar match of new and increased donations received online on November 29, 2016, up to a maximum of $10,000.
