HEADS UP: December 3 is Giving Tuesday and GlobalGiving will be matching all donations on that day at 25% to 50% depending upon the total amount donated. GlobalGiving has a total of $500,000 in matching funds to distribute so it would be beneficial that FWA receive some of these funds.

Please remember to make your year-end donation to the Friends Women's Associaiton on Giving Tuesday!
