Spotlight Impact Story
As Meta celebrates the 10th anniversary of this global day of giving, the company announced a new way of matching donations that helps organizations raise money long-term. When users sign up to donate monthly to a nonprofit on Facebook, Meta will match 100 percent of the donations after the second monthly donation. They’ll match up to $100 per donation, $100,000 per nonprofit, and up to $7 million in total across all organizations.
SAN FRANCISCO AT A GLANCE
