This Giving Tuesday, Give to POGO!Tweet
December 1, 2015
It’s that time of the year again: the first Tuesday of December is nationally recognized by non-profits as a time to shift from consuming to giving. This year, we're kickstarting the season with a campaign to fund our efforts to build a more effective, open, and ethical federal government.
This Giving Tuesday, we received a pledge to match all the funds we raise up to $11,000—the highest matching gift we have ever received for this campaign. We are very fortunate to have so many supporters who believe in our work to make this matching fund possible. And now, contributors to this campaign will see their donations doubled to $11,000 once we reach this goal.
We are welcoming any support for this campaign, as POGO relies on individual contributions to conduct oversight and increase accountability within the federal government. These following 24 hours will be crucial and we count on our supporters to help us reach our goal this year.
