Choose to Change the Future of ALS: 4 Ways to Support Augie’s Quest to Cure ALS on #GivingTuesday

Save the date — #GivingTuesday is on Tuesday,  November 30, 2021! If you’re unfamiliar with #GivingTuesday, it is a day (which is hosted each year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving) dedicated to spreading hope and helps kick off the season of giving. It is a movement of global generosity — bringing people and communities together to support causes that they care about. 

You can help change the future of ALS by choosing to support Augie’s Quest to Cure ALS this year on #GivingTuesday.

Here are 4 ways you can get involved this #GivingTuesday:

Make a Donation to Support ALS Research

Join Augie’s Quest to Cure ALS and help us kick off this season of giving and gratitude by making a donation to support critical ALS research. The cause of ALS is unknown. Scientists do not yet know why ALS strikes some and not others, which is why our mission to raise funds and awareness to advance cutting-edge research is so urgent.

Every dollar drives innovative research forward at an accelerated pace and every new discovery is progress towards managing ALS. Your generous donation today will help us change the future of ALS.

Create a Facebook Fundraiser

Fundraising on Facebook is an easy way to tap into your network and to raise funds to support ALS research — especially on #GivingTuesday! Each year, Facebook harnesses the power of their community to help raise awareness and inspire giving. This year, Facebook will match $8 million USD in qualifying donations made on Facebook during #GivingTuesday. 

Here’s how it works for 2021:

  • Matches are made on a first-come, first-served basis and will continue until the $8 million USD fund has been met.
  • First: Matching 100% of the first $2 million — For the first $2 million, Facebook will match 100% of donations made to qualifying fundraisers. For example, for every $10 donation, Facebook will also donate $10.
  • Second: Matching 10% after — For the remaining $6 million, Facebook will match 10% of donations made to qualifying fundraisers. For example, for every $10 donation, Facebook will donate $1.

Matching on Facebook begins on Tuesday, November 30, 2021 at 8am EST/5am PST, so start your Facebook fundraiser early! To get started, click the button below and then customize your fundraiser by setting your fundraising goal, giving your fundraiser a title and sharing your story. 

The best part, there are no fees associated with Facebook fundraising, and all of the funds that you raise, in addition to any qualified matching donations, will be sent directly to Augie’s Quest to Cure ALS.
