Giving Tuesday Now
#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 – in addition to the regularly scheduled Dec 1, 2020 #GivingTuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
Despite current shelter-in-place orders, Caritas of Austin continues to build well-being by housing, feeding, and helping to employ our neighbors in need each day. Because of our generous supporters, we are providing 200 sack lunches daily and have housed 15 new neighbors since mid-March.
Caritas of Austin needs your support today more than ever. It is taking more resources than ever to ensure people remain stably housed, fed, and supported during this time.
We are thrilled to announce that The Meyer Levy Charitable Trust is making a lead gift of $50,000 to help us raise needed funds!
The goal of this generous grant is to inspire individual giving on Giving Tuesday Now and shed light on the great need for Caritas of Austin’s services. Their gift – and your donation – will allow us to meet the rapidly expanding housing and food needs we see in our community right now.
How are you giving back? Share on social media with hashtag #GivingTuesdayNow and inspire others to give together even when we’re apart.
