LINCOLN, Neb., May 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- All nonprofits are eligible to take part in #GivingTuesdayNow—a new global day of giving and unity taking place May 5 as an emergency response to the financial crisis caused by COVID-19.
In tandem with GivingTuesday, the #Nonprofit Matching-Fund Initiative was launched by Nonprofit Hub, Do More Good and Firespring as a way for nonprofit organizations to raise funds and qualify for match funds at both the national and state levels.
