Giving Tuesday is an annual day of giving that takes place on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (November 29, 2022). People across the globe use the opportunity to get involved in philanthropy and volunteerism and give back to their communities. Here are a few ways you can support Northeast Mississippi on Giving Tuesday and throughout the holiday and end-of-year giving season:
- Visit https://unitedwaynems.org/give to give online with a credit or debit card, PayPal, or Apple Pay
- Venmo us at @unitedwaynems
- Create a Facebook fundraiser or give through the Donate button on our Facebook page. Meta (the parent company of Facebook and Instagram) will match up to $7 million in donations through December 31!
- Mail a check to United Way of Northeast Mississippi, 213 W Main St Ste 110, Tupelo, MS 38804
- Drop by our office from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday to drop off cash or other donations
We are excited to offer a brand new way to support the work of United Way of Northeast Mississippi right here in our local region. Save the Date for November 29 and join us in celebrating #CryptoGivingTuesday, the biggest annual occasion for crypto fundraising and giving.
Shift4 is matching $1 million in crypto donations through The Giving Block until December 31 so your impact can be doubled!
Crypto has proven to be one of the most philanthropic industries on the planet with incredible impact potential. We are excited to be on the forefront of this movement by allowing our supporters to give in this new, tax-incentivized way. We are one of only a handful of nonprofits in Mississippi (and the only United Way) that are accepting cryptocurrency donations.
Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct the donation from your taxes. This makes Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support our cause. Learn more about the tax benefits HERE.
If you would like to become one of our very first crypto-donors and double your impact by making a donation in cryptocurrency, please visit https://unitedwaynems.org/donatecrypto And please share with your contacts on social media or via email who might be interested in making a charitable gift of crypto this giving season.
