Donations to Pathfinder will be matched

Posted: Friday, November 17, 2017

While the rest of the world snacks on leftover pie and surfs the web for deals, Pathfinder Services, with the help of AWS Foundation, will be mobilizing their community to double down on #GivingTuesday. Pathfinder Services is teaming up with AWS Foundation to join the #GivingTuesday movement, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.

But #GivingTuesday will look a little different for the folks served by Pathfinder Services this year. Thanks to the generosity of AWS Foundation, all new donations to Pathfinder Services will be matched – dollar for dollar – up to $10,000. In addition, any former donor who increases their gift will have the increased amount matched.

Occurring this year on November 28, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Following the widely recognized shopping events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this event kicks off the holiday giving season and inspires people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

“We are grateful to our friends at AWS Foundation who have stepped up to make a difference in the lives of those we serve. By doubling the impact of gifts made on Giving Tuesday, they have created twice the opportunities for our friends,” said John Niederman, president of Pathfinder Services. “If you have ever considered supporting Pathfinder and helping people become more included in our community, this special event is the time to do it.”
