$7 Million Match #GivingTuesday
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and so is Giving Tuesday – a global day dedicated to charitable giving. November 27, 2018.
Gettysburg Community Theatre has an exciting campaign planned for Giving Tuesday — one that will support our annual appeal currently under way.
You may have already made your annual appeal gift for 2018 or your donation to GCT or GCT's Endowment through the Adams County Community Foundation and their wonderful event last week, 2018 Giving Spree (if so, we THANK YOU), but here is another opportunity to spread the word about GCT with your family and friends.
If you, or anyone you know has a facebook page, we are asking you to set up a Facebook fundraiser in support of Gettysburg Community Theatre.
Creating a Facebook fundraiser
is simple, there is no fee, and it is a great opportunity to connect your family and friends to GCT and tell them all about us and the wonderful work we do as a non-profit 501c3 organization year round for all ages and abilities.
HOW TO CREATE A FACEBOOK FUNDRAISER
Facebook does not charge any fees to nonprofits for these fundraisers so 100% of the funds raised will go straight to GCT.
An added bonus is that there will once again be a Giving Tuesday match on Facebook. This year, Facebook is partnering with PayPal to match up to $7 million in donations made on Facebook, starting at 8 am EDT on Giving Tuesday.

Help Us Bridge The Gap
As ticket sales only cover 60% of our annual operating budget, we rely on grants, business sponsors, and individual donations to help bridge that gap in order to keep tuition and ticket fees reasonable.
If you have Facebook, PLEASE consider using the link below to set up your own facebook fundraiser for GCT to receive 100% of the donations. There is no fee involved and we hope you will share this information too. Please set up this fundraiser the night before or the morning of Giving Tuesday as the matching funds start at 8am November 27th!
GCT will also have a #GivingTuesday fundraiser on our facebook page on November 27th so that any donations made online on the facebook fundraisers for GCT that day will get matching funds. No donation is to small and it all gets matched on Facebook for that day only.
Thank you for your support!
