If you are not familiar with Giving Tuesday it is a great way to lead up to the holiday of Thanksgiving and a strong response to the consumer excess of Black Friday. The idea is that on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving people give to their favorite charity. It has a nice sense of give back to kick off the holidays.
We hope that you will consider Urban Librarians Unite for your Giving Tuesday donation. We are a 501c3 not for profit so all donations are completely tax deductible. Our org is tiny so your donation goes a long way. We are VERY grateful for every dollar donated to keep us afloat.
This year we have an exciting matching grant. Cabot Orton of the Vermont Country Store has generously offered us an $800 matching gift if we can meet that goal in the next two weeks.
If 32 ULU supporters give just $25 each we’d get to $800 in a jiffy!
If 20 people gave $50 each … we’d knock that $800 out of the park!
If 12 people gave $100 each … we’d do a super happy dance and jump for joy!
ULU is out there working for libraries all the time. We are planning our third Urban Librarians Conference, have a network of Mini Libraries out in the community, and are gearing up for this year’s budget conversation already.
