    All,

    Facebook (yes it’s real and not a scam) is matching donations made through their donation links today starting at 8AM. The USMMA Alumni Foundation is one of the charities you can select.

    Please consider donating today to get the school “free money”!

    Here is an excerpt of my conversation with the Alumni Association:

    Donations and Reporting made to the AAF through Facebook are handled by the donor-advised fund Network from Good (NFG).
    1. NFG will provide a tax receipt to the donor immediately, which will count as a 2018 gift.
    2. NFG will provide the AAF with the donor's information, donation amount (if the donor chooses to share).
    3. Facebook and NFG will not charge fees for their Giving Tuesday matching gift program which starts 8am ET.

    Well, looks like Facebook already hit their $7 million matching max so they won’t be matching anymore donations, but definitely still consider donating.

    Since the match is over recommend donating directly at the USMMAAF website
