#GivingWeek FAQ's & Resoures

When is #GivingWeek?

Officially begins on #GivingTuesday, November 27th and ends on Tuesday, December 4th.

What is #GivingWeek

It all starts with #GivingTuesday: a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

This year we've decided to dedicate AN ENTIRE WEEK of sharing and giving via our online Facebook community & we're calling it #GivingWeek

Components of our #GivingWeek Campaign are:

1. The Challenge Match

  • Each NEW donation we receive of $50 or more will be matched 100% (up to $1,000 per donation).

2. The UNselfie Contest

  • Take a "selfie" with a caption to explain why you support Federation.
  • Add the hashtags #UNSELFIE and #GivingTogether.
  • Post it to JFD's Facebook page.
  • Each person who posts their #UNSELFIE to Jewish Federation of Delaware's Facebook will be entered into a drawing for the chance to win a $100 VISA gift card. 
  • SHARE far and wide & get your friends to join you! This week is about sharing your passion for Federation and not just about monetary giving.
