You can double, triple or even quadruple your impact to #DefeatDIPG when you join with us on Giving Tuesday!

Help us raise at least $60,000 in just one day to fund research for the deadliest pediatric cancer. On #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving on November 28, when you #Give2DefeatDIPG, our generous matching donors will match donations up to $30,000.

PLUS, with employer matching and matching for early Facebook donations by Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, you could even triple or quadruple your donation!

We thank the William & Mildred Kaplan Charitable Foundation and the Tough Like Jack Foundation for committing $10,000 each in matching funds.  Tough Like Jack Foundation was established to honor Jack Culverhouse who fought DIPG before his passing at 7 years old on June 1, 2015.  We also thank Anndreya & Ross Harris for pledging $3,500 in matching funds, and an additional anonymous donor who committed $6,500 for matching.

Here are some steps you can take:

  1. Set a calendar reminder for November 28 & DONATE!
  2. Set up a fundraiser on Facebook for Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation to launch at 8:00 am EST on November 28, and funds can be tripled or even quadrupled if your employer matches.CLICK HERE for step-by-step instructions for creating your Facebook fundraiser.  Or you can CLICK HERE to take you straight to the page where you just click “Raise Money.”

    Beginning at 8:00 am EST, on November 28, Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will match the first $1,000 generated from each fundraiser through Facebook.  Their match will continue until $2 million in matching funds is exhausted – so it is important to get those donations right at the start at 8:00 am!  Also, Facebook will not charge processing fees throughout Giving Tuesday on donations made through Facebook fundraisers.

  3. Spread the word about #Give2DefeatDIPG to your friends and family and encourage them to support our mission.
  4. Add a #Give2DefeatDIPG frame to your Facebook profile picture.  Just click “change picture” on your profile and then “add frame.”  Enter #Give2DefeatDIPG in the search bar. You can use this with any profile picture of your choosing.
  5. Request a custom graphic to honor a DIPG child while raising funds for research on Giving Tuesday. Email events@defeatdipg.org with the name of the child and a picture. Permission from the parents of the child is required.
