Giving Tuesday: A Successful New Initiative in 2014 Will Continue in 2015

Princeton HealthCare System (PHCS) Foundation’s inaugural Giving Tuesday effort in 2014 raised more than $277,000 for the Annual Fund, including a generous matching gift from the Lebensfeld Foundation. Occurring every year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a global initiative that started in 2012 as a new tradition to celebrate generosity with a call to action to help a good cause.

Because of the tremendous response we experienced in 2014, the Lebensfeld Foundation has agreed to double its gift this year. Once again, it will provide a challenge match to encourage people to take part in Giving Tuesday 2015 by making a gift to PHCS. The match is a 1:1 recognition match for any unrestricted or Annual Fund donation up to $5,000. As an example, a gift of $100 will be recognized as a gift of $200; a gift of $10,000 will be recognized as $15,000.

Unrestricted funds support many priorities, including training for staff, technology upgrades, and care for the uninsured and underinsured in our community. In addition to its Giving Tuesday support, the Lebensfeld Foundation also made a generous gift that will help the launch of a robust Pelvic Health program for the community.

Giving Tuesday occurs on December 1, 2015.

Donations made on Tuesday, December 1, will qualify for the Lebensfeld match. Pledges made that day must be fulfilled by December 31, 2015, in order to receive the recognition match. Please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity! For more information, call 609.252.8710 or click here.
