On December 1st, 2015, the world will experience its fourth annual #GivingTuesday.

What is #GivingTuesday?

In the same way that Black Friday and Cyber Monday kick off the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday kicks off the giving season. It was created in 2012 as a global day of giving back and doing good for others. In its three years, it has proven to be a real and sustainable fundraising tool. It has grown dramatically each year, with a total of almost $46 million raised in 2014, over 60% more than 2013. All signs indicate that its growth will continue in 2015.

I’m very excited to inform you that…

The Washington Apple Education Foundation will be participating in this year’s #GivingTuesday!

We have a goal of raising $10,000, and we really hope you’ll be a part of helping us reach that goal! All of the donations received will go towards scholarship support to students tied to the tree fruit industry.

You can get involved by sending your donation by check to the WAEF office: 2900 Euclid Avenue, Wenatchee, WA 98801, or you can click the Donate Online button below. For more information about #GivingTuesday, visit the official website www.givingtuesday.org.

We hope you’re able to join the millions who are making #GivingTuesday the huge success that it is by contributing to the Washington Apple Education Foundation on December 1!
