#GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 in an effort to refocus and inspire the giving spirit. Over the past seven years, it has become a global movement with over organizations in more than 150 countries raising over $400 million dollars on #GivingTuesday in 2018.


On Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019, Morris Animal Refuge is asking for your support as part of #GivingTuesday. Your generosity will allow us to continue to provide shelter, food, medicine, and the hope for a second chance at a forever home for the homeless and neglected animals of Philadelphia. Last year our community raised over $16,000 for our animals making it our best #GivingTuesday ever!  This year we’re counting on you to help us beat that number!


This year, donations will be matched up to $7,500, our largest matching gift yet!

With this amazing matching gift, we have set our goal for this #GivingTuesday at $20,000!
