If you’re planning on donating to NGPA, we would like to ask you to consider taking advantage of Giving Tuesday Facebook donation match by committing to making your donation directly to NGPA via our Facebook fundraiser. The catch is that the 8-million-dollar match goes FAST— usually within the matter of a few minutes. So, in order to get in on the match, we’d be asking you to make your donation at 8 a.m. Eastern on November 30th.
How do I donate?
We’re asking for you to login to your Facebook account (assuming you have one) a few minutes prior to 8am Eastern Time and go to the NGPA Facebook donation page. Our donation page link will be available a few days prior to the ask.
Once It is 8am Eastern Time on Tuesday November 30th, 2021, the match will begin and that is your chance to donate with the $8 million-dollar match from Facebook. Don’t forget to share the fundraiser with your friends so they can help support NGPA too!
Any donation that receives a match can count towards your Flight Deck status— so if you donate $600 (First Officer level) and it qualifies for the 100% match, then you’ll be credited for the full $1,200 and receive Captain Flight Deck status…it’s a win-win! Those who receive a match after the campaign must complete our claims process to get their match credited to their account.
What are the funds used for?
Your donation will go towards programs such as Scholarships, Outreach, Advocacy, and more. Every $ raised helps us make aviation more open and inclusive of the LGBTQ community and achieve our vision of reaching a Destination that is Equal, Authentic, and Respected Everywhere.
