Donations to Huntington County Promise can be doubled

Qualifying donations made to Huntington County Promise on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 28, can be doubled.

Through the 1:1 Fund, Huntington County Promise will receive a dollar-for-dollar match on every donation up to $500 per individual donor.

Donations will be used to help local youth open CollegeChoice 529 accounts with an initial $25 deposit and to encourage families to contribute to the accounts by providing matching funds for their own deposits.

Huntington County Promise has set a goal of raising $5,000 in 24 hours on Nov. 28.

Individuals, groups or organizations interested in donating as part of Giving Tuesday can visit donate.wabashcountyymca.org/team/144804 to make an online donation.
