Thanks for checking out #GivingTuesday for the Iowa Bicycle Coalition
This year, #GivingTuesday is bigger than it has ever been before. With thousands in matching funds from our major supporters and millions on the table from Facebook*, Giving Tuesday is the absolute best day all year to support the Iowa Bicycle Coalition with a cash donation. Just select the platform you want to give on, make an easy one-time donation, and sit back knowing that your donation counts for up to 3 times its normal impact! Thank you for being part of something great for bicycle advocacy today.
If you have a moment, there is great video content dropping all day long on our Facebook page. Stop by, enjoy the content, drop a like, leave a comment, and share the stories with your friends. Everything you do helps expand our reach and empowers us to end fatal crashes and make bicycling safer and more accessible to everyone in Iowa.

You can share the Giving Tuesday campaign with other people you know. Check out the GivingTuesday ambassador page for content and tips for sharing on social media, face-to-face, over email, or however you like. When you do, you make a huge impact for bicycling advocacy.
*$7 million dollars in matching funds from Facebook are available with the following rules. When you sign up to donate monthly to a nonprofit on Facebook, Meta will match 100% of your donation after you make your second monthly donation. Meta will match up to $100 per donation, $100,000 per nonprofit and up to $7 million in total across all organizations. To be eligible for Facebook/Meta’s match, people in the US can sign up to donate monthly between November 15 and December 31, 2022.
Note: This is a shift from how Facebook has historically matched one-time donations on GivingTuesday, and was likely done to spread the match period further than previous year’s where it was exhausted in a matter of minutes.
