Stronger Together on Giving Tuesday, November 30th

As the season of giving and gratefulness is upon us, we want to thank you for being a part of The EHE Foundation family.  We appreciate you following our progress and investing in our passion: discovering effective treatments and a cure for EHE. We are thankful for our supporters, partners, and volunteers who make our continued progress possible. 

#GivingTuesday (Tues, Nov 30, 2021) is a global movement to celebrate and encourage giving after Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday.  We are thrilled to announce that all donations will be DOUBLED up to $64,000 with personal donations by our very own Board of Directors. Your donation may also be TRIPLED by Facebook matching, starting promptly at 8am (Eastern Time) on Nov 30th. There’s even a chance your donation will be QUADRUPLED if your employer matches your donation.

This is your chance to multiply your impact in helping those affected by this extremely rare cancer by:

  • Donating through our Facebook Page (fee free). Matching applies to donations to any fundraiser or donate button on our Facebook page. Anyone is welcome to create their own fundraiser here.
  • Donating online on our website here. You may use a credit card, direct deposit (ACH), or PayPal.
  • Mailing a check payable to The EHE Foundation, 1561 Hopi Ct, Hobart, WI 54313.

You can trust that your contribution will go a long way in continuing our forward momentum in research for EHE.  This year alone we have worked directly with Margie and Robert E. Petersen Foundation who have now gifted a total of $4 million to fight EHE. This substantial funding will help continue Dr. Rubin’s valuable EHE research at the Cleveland Clinic and allow us to push forward towards our mission.  Explore the current funded research projects and initiatives here.

More About Matching

#GivingTuesay is a powerful day for giving and we are #StrongerTogether. Donations will be doubled and in some cases tripled and quadrupled!

The EHE Foundation Board of Directors
The EHE Foundation Board of Directors will personally match up to $64,000 of your donations made online, through Facebook, or mailed. This will DOUBLE your donation!

Facebook
Facebook will match up to $8 million of donations made via Facebook on #GivingTuesday. For the first $2 million, they will match 100% of donations made to The EHE Foundation.  This money goes very fast and starts promptly at 8am ET. For the remaining $6 million, Facebook will match 10% of donations made to The EHE Foundation. Matching caps are $100,000 per nonprofit and $20,000 per donor. Donors will be notified by Facebook in early 2022 if their donation was matched. This may TRIPLE your donation!

Employer Matching
After an employee or retiree makes a donation to an eligible nonprofit, such as The EHE Foundation, they fill out a matching gift submission request and submit it to their company’s HR department. Each company’s process varies. If the donation and our nonprofit meet the company’s guidelines, the company cuts a check to The EHE Foundation for the same amount as the employee’s donation (and sometimes even two, three, or four times that amount). This may QUADRUPLE your donation!

We know you have many options when it comes to giving, but we hope you will support those affected by EHE. If you would like more information or if you need assistance, please email us at [email protected] or call us at 1-877-460-4240 (toll-free in the US).
