#GivingTuesday was an overwhelming success throughout the world this year—$168 million was raised in over 98 countries! The Fiver team worked hard in preparation for November 29th and raised just under $20,000. But it's not over yet; our Giving Tuesday campaign will remain open until December 31st! Our goal of raising $25,000 (which will be matched dollar for dollar) can be achieved with strong donor support, and we extend a big thank you to the over 200 donors who have already contributed to Fiver this holiday season. If you haven’t had the chance to donate yet, there are 22 more days to contribute to the campaign and give a child the gift of opportunity!
Reaching our Giving Tuesday fundraising goal means that we will be able to enroll 28 new Fiver participants for their first summer at Camp Fiver, our award-winning and comprehensive character-building residential summer camp. Fivers enter the program at age 8 and graduate at age 18, receiving continuous developmentally appropriate programs throughout their 10 years with Fiver that empower them to become responsible citizens who make positive life choices. The results are tangible—99% of program graduates also graduate high school and 90% of those graduates go on to enroll in college or the military.

Even though November 29th has passed, it’s not too late to be part of Giving Tuesday! #DontWaitToDonate
