It is that time of year again, Giving Tuesday is only a month away!
Last year through your generous support we raised almost $20,000 on Giving Tuesday. This allowed us to continue and expand our feeding, education, and extra curricular activities throughout 2015.
This year, on December 1, United Methodists will join hands to support the work of Advance projects and missionaries to transform lives on UMC #GivingTuesday. Every gift made online through The Advance at on Dec. 1, 2015 will be matched up to $1 million.

There is also a big change this year UMC #GivingTuesday will be on Dec. 1, 2015, between 12:00 am and 11:59 pm CENTRAL TIME. This is 1am Eastern Time and will be 11pm Monday night Mountain Time and 10pm Pacfiic Time. Matching will not start until then, but also the matched donations usually go very quickly so please plan accordingly.
If you are unsure what time 12am central time is where you live, you can follow this link to find out here.
A couple of notes about the restrictions:
- Global Ministries will allocate matching funds dollar for dollar up to the first $1 million in gifts to Advance projects received online on Dec. 1, 2015, between 12:00 am and 11:59 pm Central Time.
- A maximum of $2,500 per individual gift to a project will be dispersed as matching funds. A project may receive a maximum of $25,000 in matching funds.
As always, we want to thank you for your generous support. If you or your church are considering a donation to Strong Missions this year, Giving Tuesday is a great way to double your impact.
