#GivingTuesday is approaching quickly! This year, it falls on Nov. 27. What is #GivingTuesday? It’s a global day dedicated to making individual and corporate donations to worthy causes such as the American Legion Auxiliary Foundation.
For the fourth year, ALA Foundation’s participation in #GivingTuesday is making a direct impact on the lives of veterans, military, and their families through the Veteran Projects Fund and the Mission Endowment Fund.
The Veteran Projects Fund, which supports ALA projects that address the emergent needs of veterans, has been used to purchase life-changing equipment for a veterans home in Nebraska, purchase computer stations and laptops for veterans facilities, and provide art and physical therapy equipment to veterans facilities in need.
The Mission Endowment Fund uses the interest on donations paid into the fund to support ALA programs such as American Legion Auxiliary Girls Nation, ensuring future generations may benefit from Auxiliary programs, which support veterans and their families.
ALA National Headquarters creates weekly Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts in support of the ALA Foundation and #GivingTuesday – our members and supporters are welcomed and encouraged to copy and paste these posts onto your personal pages and share with their friends and families.
