On Tuesday, November 27th, people around the world will be giving back to charities, volunteering, and making a difference in the lives of people in need. On this international day of giving, pay it forward to your favorite non-profit – The Arc! This year, Facebook has partnered with PayPal to match up to $7 million in donations to eligible nonprofits like The Arc of Essex County.

Starting at 8:00am EST on Tuesday, November 27th, Facebook and PayPal will match donations up to $250,000 to The Arc of Essex County and $20,000 per donor until the $7 million runs out.

Whether it be through the “Donate” button on our Facebook homepage or through your own fundraiser for The Arc of Essex County on Facebook, each donation will be matched! The Arc of Essex County will use your generous donation to improve the lives of the children and adults with Autism, Down syndrome, and other intellectual and developmental disabilities that we serve.
