We’re getting ready now because $5,000 is at stake
The Lansing Journal will be joining other organizations on Giving Tuesday, November 28, but we are calling our version Giving NEWSday. We want to keep giving news to our community, and we depend on community support in order to continue.
What’s new this year is that we have a MATCHING GIFT that will double the impact of all Giving NEWSday gifts — up to $5,000.
The Lansing Journal is eager to get every dollar of that matching gift. If you already know you want to give and have your gift matched, you don’t have to wait — use the form below:
About Giving Tuesday
Giving Tuesday started in 2012 to encourage generosity. It is always the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, an attempt to offset the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
About Giving NEWSday
The Lansing Journal started Giving NEWSday to give our readers a way to help us keep local news free for everyone. “Free” news costs money to report, publish, and deliver — and those costs go up year after year.
About the matching gift
This year The Lansing Journal received a Sustainability Grant from an organization that believes we are doing important work in our community. They are willing to match up to $5,000 – so we want to make sure we raise that full amount.
Will you help us take full advantage of this Giving NEWSday matching gift? You don’t have to wait until November 28. You can use the secure form above today, and it will count toward the Giving NEWSday matching gift.
