Giving Tuesday 2015
The last few days have provided many stellar opportunities for holiday shopping- Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. Today is Giving Tuesday. On this special day, we hope you’ll join the Illinois College of Optometry in offering care to the less fortunate.
All money gifted to ICO on Dec 1 will go toward our Charitable Care Eyeglass Program. This initiative provides glasses, frames, and corrective lenses to adults and children who can’t otherwise afford them.
Just $30 buys a pair of eyeglasses for one adult or child. No matter the dollar amount, your gift will make a real, tangible difference in someone’s life.
As an extra incentive to participate in this year’s Giving Tuesday, an anonymous donor has offered $15,000 to match your generosity. Qualifying for the matching dollars is easy:
- If you have never made a gift to ICO or haven’t made a gift in the past year, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar up to and including $3,750.
- If you have made a gift to ICO in the past year, any amount over your last gift will be matched again dollar for dollar up to and including $3,750.
