Collective Spark: A Giving Initiative

 

Believe it or not, over 10,000 for-profit and nonprofit organizations from all 50 states and 11 countries partner with #GivingTuesday. Since it was founded in 2012, Giving Tuesday has helped facilitate $300 million in online giving and inspired additional donations of materials and volunteerism. So, in the spirit of giving, we decided to launch of our Giving Tuesday initiative called Collective Spark. Here’s how it worked:

From Thursday November 7th through November 28th at midnight, we asked you to:

Choose your location and learn about the local non-profit organizations nominated by U.S. Eagle members in October 2018.

Vote for your favorite non-profit organization and increase their odds of winning by voting each day.

Share the program with friends and network to rally support for your favorite organization.

What’s at stake? We’re glad you asked!

U.S. Eagle has committed to investing $22,500 in our community. Based on the votes we received, we’ll be awarding three non-profits from three different markets (Albuquerque Metro, Santa Fe County, and San Juan County) with a charitable contribution.

  • 1st place: $5,000 x 3= $15,000
  • 2nd place: $2,000 x 3= $6,000
  • 3rd place: $500 x 3= $1,500

Total: $22,500
