Frequently Asked Questions
How were the nonprofits chosen?
Nonprofits apply to be part of #GivingTuesday. Every year we choose nonprofit partners based on the following qualifications:
- A charitable nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) IRS determination
- Provide their certified financial audit and/or 990
- Must be current with their tax status and have their License to Solicit (if required)
- Must not be a religious or educational institution
- Have a mission related to Copper Shores's Strategic Goals and Objectives or raise funds for a specific project that relates to those pillars
- Organization must be domiciled in and serve the people of Baraga, Houghton, Keweenaw and/or Ontonagon counties.
What to expect during #GivingTuesday
Will my donation be matched?
Yes. All donations made during #GivingTuesday will be matched. Copper Shores Community Health Foundation is matching dollar-for-dollar up to $250,000. If more than $250,000 is donated, non-profits will receive a portion of the $250,000 equal to the proportion of total donations they brought in.
For example, if $500,000 was donated and they brought in $50,000 of that, they would have brought in 10% of the total, and would receive 10% of the match. That would mean $50,000 was donated and Copper Shores is matching with $25,000 in additional funds. Every penny donated to the nonprofits goes to the nonprofits.
