Giving Tuesday 2019 donation matching opportunity is coming up

For the past two years, Face­book has coun­ter­fac­tu­ally matched dona­tions made on their plat­form the Tues­day af­ter Thanks­giv­ing un­til the funds have run out. The EA Giv­ing Tues­day team has been at­tempt­ing to co­or­di­nate the EA com­mu­nity around this match to di­rect as much of the funds as pos­si­ble to­ward EA char­i­ties. Last year we were able to get 65% of EA dona­tions matched, for a to­tal of $469,000 coun­ter­fac­tu­ally raised for effec­tive char­i­ties. For more in­for­ma­tion, see our our ret­ro­spec­tive from last year.

Face­book hasn’t made any an­nounce­ments yet, but we think it’s likely they’ll do a re­peat this year. If you’re in­ter­ested in learn­ing more about EA Giv­ing Tues­day, get­ting your dona­tions matched, or get­ting in­volved in any other way, please sign up on our web­site.

We be­lieve that the usual rea­sons to be skep­ti­cal of dona­tion matches don’t ap­ply here, since the money would oth­er­wise be go­ing to char­i­ties of more typ­i­cal effec­tive­ness.
