Giving Tuesday 2022 Includes 20k Match For Donations

Nov 29, 2022

The Salvation Army Great Lakes Division is excited to take part once again in the Giving Tuesday movement. What began in 2012 as a simple idea—a day that encourages people to do good—now inspires hundreds of millions of people globally to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity each year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. In 2022, we celebrate it on Tuesday, November 29.

Like many individuals and groups who participate in Giving Tuesday, The Salvation Army provides a variety of opportunities to create change in the communities we serve. The need for assistance is great in Michigan and shows no sign of slowing down. We offer established ways for caring individuals to step up and make a difference in their own neighborhoods throughout the year.

While many call on philanthropists, policymakers, and grant makers to repair broken systems, Giving Tuesday recognizes that individuals can drive change by their everyday actions and decisions.

Although people share concern for each other, some aren’t sure which organizations they should donate to or how to get involved. We eliminate the guesswork.

The Salvation Army has more than 150 years of experience supporting those who are struggling, suffering, and seeking a better life for themselves and their families. We use our resources to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. We also welcome volunteers who want to get involved and assist us in our mission.

This year, your donation to The Salvation Army can go further thanks to a generous donation match from our sponsors: Commercial Alliance, Community Choice Credit Union, Monroe Community Credit Union, and OMNI Community Credit Union. Donations will be matched up to $20,000. This match will help ensure that thousands of families will not have to make difficult choices like paying their light bill or putting presents under the tree. It shows love to people in need across the country this Christmas and beyond.

Here are a few ways you can donate:

  • Texting GIFT to 24365
  • Using contactless Kettle Pay via Apple Pay, Google Pay, Venmo, and PayPal
  • Donating money via an online or physical red kettle
  • Donating Online
