Dear JIT Community,

This special edition of the Monday Memo is all about Thanks Giving.

You did what you could to navigate Black Friday. You’re still getting used to planning for Cyber Monday.  Now you have your final opportunity to make a decision about how to direct your funds in the week following Thanksgiving.  Giving Tuesday!

What makes Giving Tuesday so different from the rest?  It’s a day when your investment isn’t in something with a price tag or that you might someday regret telling people about. This Tuesday, you’ll join people around the world to invest money, time and talent to the causes they care most about as we kickoff the charitable giving season. We’re hoping the cause for you is helping the many young people who leave the foster care system with little or no family support.

That’s why we’re offering an opportunity for you to give thanks for and share your good fortune over the next few days. Please consider taking time out between now and midnight on November 28, Giving Tuesday, to make an investment in young lives at this critical juncture in their lives using this link: Champions For Youth – Just in Time for Foster Youth

The opportunity for our JIT Community to generate resources is even greater because Just in Time has again been selected as one of only 10 nonprofit beneficiaries this year to take advantage of matching funds from the Century Club of San Diego, the philanthropic group that holds the prestigious Farmers Insurance Open PGA Golf Tournament annually at Torrey Pines.

When you make a fully tax-deductible contribution between now and midnight on Giving Tuesday at the link below, the Century Club will pay the credit card fees, add funds from a bonus pool, and then transfer 100% of your gift back to Just in Time!  And every gift of $10 or more of any size really matters because the more people who donate, the higher the match for JIT!

Our goal this Giving Tuesday is to raise a significant portion of our $150,000 target from our community supporters like you and receive the highest possible match from the Century Club to invest in the hundreds of young people who count on Just in Time to be the family that every young person deserves.  We cannot achieve this ambitious goal without you.

So before midnight on Giving Tuesday, November 28, please contribute to The Century Club on behalf of Just in Time.  It’s your best investment this year.
