#Giving Tuesday

The Panhandle Gives


FSS will participate in a great fundraising opportunity on November 19th - 27th. The Panhandle Gives is coordinated by the Amarillo Area Foundation in conjunction with Giving Tuesday, which is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving each year. FSS and many other non-profits will benefit from a major marketing campaign and publicity.


There is a way to maximize our donations by garnering a share of the non-designated donations that are sure to come from this campaign - what the Foundation calls an amplification fund. BUT we have to follow the rules set out by the Area Foundation.


1. Donations can only be made in November between the 19th and 27th to count towards amplification.

2. Donations must go through the Amarillo Area Foundation (see ways to donate below.)

3.. No donations that come to FSS directly will count towards amplification. Facebook campaigns, Paypal, etc. don't count towards our total. Otherwise, it is simple!


Be sure to find the FSS logo so your donation is credited correctly and counts towards amplification! A direct link to the FSS site will be provided November 19th.


Be sure and write Family Support Services in the memo section of your checks!
