Global Giving offers a 100% Match during the September 2018 Recurring Match Campaign

Help UPO Help the DC Homeless has been fortunate to be invited to participate in the Global Giving Recurring Match Campaign this week from Monday, September 24 through Friday, September 28, 2018!

This is a great opportunity, and here’s how it works.

Make your Year End Campaign gift to Help UPO Help the DC Homeless this week and spread your payments over 4 months!

  • The initial gift of a new recurring donation will be matched 100% up to $200 per donor
  • To be eligible for matching, the recurring donation must last for at least three months after the initial donation (a minimum of 4 donations total). So, for example, if you start a new recurring donation this month, keep it active through October, November, and December, then your initial donation from September will be matched 100%.

For example: Make a commitment to donate $100 to Help UPO Help the DC Homeless Year End Campaign. Initiate a recurring donation of $25 this month, for at least 4 months through October, November and December and your September donation will be matched 100%!

While many of us have protection from the elements, from icy conditions to searing heat in the summer, the homeless do not. UPO helps the DC homeless in several ways throughout the year. With a rise in DC homeless, the UPO Shelter Hotline vans transported 155,476 people to shelter last year.

Help us raise money for comfort items for the homeless people we assist, from feminine items to care packages, water, food trays and protective clothing.

Here's how you can help:

Initiate a recurring donation! All new recurring donations this week will be matched at 100% (as long as they remain active for 4 payments), and will give meaningful, dependable support for our work.

Summer heat has hit Washington DC with a vengeance!

This DC Summer Is Going To Be Blazing Hot: Farmers' Almanac; Record-busting temps loom over DC area: WTOP 103.5FM; Could be one of the hottest summers ever- NBC4; are just three of the many headlines we have seen and heard in DC in recent weeks.

While many of us have protection from the elements, from icy conditions to searing heat in the summer, the homeless do not. UPO helps the DC homeless in several ways throughout the year and during the past few weeks UPO Shelter Hotline vans have transported hundreds of people to cooling stations. We provide comfort items for the homeless people we assist, from feminine items to care packages, water, food trays and protective clothing. With the heat wave having hit several weeks before summer officially began, Help UPO Help the DC Homeless has set a GOAL of raising an additional $3,000 during the next few weeks to ensure we are well stocked with comfort items to distribute to the DC homeless.

Help DC Help the DC Homeless has raised $17,337 to date from 200 generous donors, many of whom have donated to the project several time. Our GOAL is to raise an additional $3,000 during the next few weeks to finally reach our Project GOAL of $20,000.

GlobalGiving Rewards Bonus Day tomorrow, Thursday July 18, will provide us with a great opportunity to meet our GOALS.

Help UPO Help the DC Homeless! Our Superstar Ranking with GlobalGiving, earned with your support, will enable us to receive a 50% Match for each dollar we raise on GlobalGiving Rewards Bonus Day tomorrow, Thursday July 18.

The Rewards Bonus Day starts at 9:00:01 EDT tomorrow Thursday July 18 that is when the $120,000 in one-time matching funds will become available. The day ends at 11:59:59 EDT, however the matching funds may be used up much earlier in the day.

Thank you, dear loyal friends, for your generous support of  Help UPO Help the DC Homeless to date. With your help we have always had sufficient funds to provide the comfort items we have needed for our homeless customers who are dependent on UPO Shelter Hotlines support. Here’s how we can raise $3,000 for emergency comfort items for the DC Homeless in 15 hours on Thursday July 18!

You are one of 200 donors who have made donations to Help UPO Help the DC Homeless. If each one of us makes an additional donation of at least $10 to Help UPO Help the DC Homeless tomorrow, Thursday July 18, we will raise $2,000. If all our donations qualify for 50% matching funds we have the possibility of raising $3,000, the total needed to reach our GOALS.

The start time is 9:00:01 EDT on July 18. That is when the $120,000 in one-time matching funds will become available. Please make your donation as early as possible in the day to ensure that your donation is matched!
