Robert H. Jackson Center Launches #GivingTuesdayNow Campaign


#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity, set to take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. The day is designed to drive an influx of generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.

The Robert H. Jackson Center is seeking to advance its mission and sustainability by adding at least 25 new members to its Bench Circle during Giving Tuesday Now. Members of the Bench Circle make a weekly, monthly or quarterly gift to sustain their impact on the Jackson Center’s work throughout the year and help the Center maintain consistent funding.

“We’ve always been fortunate to have a deep bench of supporters behind the Jackson Center – our volunteers, visitors, donors, sponsors and Board,” said Kristan McMahon, president of the Jackson Center. “We are highlighting the Bench Circle for Giving Tuesday Now because we want to bring that bench deeper into our mission and work. The members of this Circle provide consistent, sustaining, and reliable support. This enables the Jackson Center to focus on and expand its work educating, promoting civic engagement, and championing the universal principles of justice, fairness, and equality.”
