The Never Settle Foundation launched the Coronavirus Emergency Action Fund on April 19, 2020. The goal of the fund is to invest up to $20,000 towards Coronavirus relief programs in the next nine months. We got things started immediately by pledging a grant of $10,000 to five non-profit programs. In addition, we offered donation matching for the first $1,000 donated or fundraised by Team Never Settle.
#GivingTuesdayNow on May 5th
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, nonprofits across the country face the most unprecedented challenges of our time. That’s why the same people behind #GivingTuesday announced #GivingTuesdayNow to take place on May 5, 2020. #GivingTuesdayNow is a chance for people around the world to stand together in unity and use their individual power of generosity to help nonprofits in need. And don’t worry, the regularly scheduled December 1, 2020 #GivingTuesday is still happening.
GoFundMe Charity is giving $300,000 to nonprofits
