Get Involved: UMC #GivingTuesday Dec. 3 – Matching Funds Double Your Donation!

Have you often wanted to stretch your giving to include one more orphan, one more hungry family, one more youth longing to study? When you make an online donation on December 3, your gift will double! FOR ONE DAY ONLY, on December 3, 2013, as part of UMC #GivingTuesday, gifts made to the SIFAT general fund through Advance #982812 will be matched*. On this day, 200 percent of your gift directly supports our SIFAT ministry.

On December 3 beginning at 12 a.m. EST (remember that’s 11 p.m. Dec. 2 CST), you can donate to the SIFAT General Fund on our Advance #982812 page (see link below). We encourage you to donate early because of the limited availability of matching funds (only $500,000 total for all organizations combined)! Our staff will gladly send you an early reminder or help you in any way we can in making your donation. Email Marie ( with any questions or with information on how you would like to be contacted for your reminder – phone, e-mail or text!

Here is the website to use to donate. Simply click the large, red GIVE NOW button on the right side of the page.

Thank you so much for your faithful support to SIFAT and for doubling your impact by making a generous gift on December 3.

Grace and peace,

Tom Corson
Executive Director
