On Giving Tuesday this year, nonprofit organizations around the world raised $116.7 million from 1.08 million different donations. Wow, what a way to celebrate giving around the globe! And for us, Giving Tuesday was a resounding success for our organization, the youth we serve and the city of Chicago. We set out to raise $2,500 on Tuesday, December 1st and we raised $1,600 the day of with another $800 in pledged donations for a total of $2,400. We were just $100 shy of our goal but are still so excited to have so much support.
For our 2016 fiscal year, we have set a goal to raise $10,000 from individual contributions throughout the year and Giving Tuesday was a great kick off to this campaign!
Thank You again and we look forward to seeing you all at our upcoming events and games once the season starts.
