On Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Normally, #GivingTuesday happens in November around Thanksgiving but this year #GivingTuesdayNow has been moved up in the calendar as a global day of unity to take place on May 5, 2020.

Please consider donating to Genesis Youth Foundation to assist underserved youth in the Des Moines Metro area. Your donation  will help support GYF’s soccer program so immigrant and refugee families have access to soccer uniforms, warm-ups, shoes, tournament fees and travel. Your donation helps GYF provide our unique program that includes athletics, academics and the arts where children’s play becomes the work that changes the world. For many of our kids, soccer is the gateway activity that attracts them to Genesis programming and leads to access to other supports including required academic enrichment that is a part of the GYF model, as well as leadership training and family support.

This #GivingTuesday, Genesis Youth Foundation is seeking to raise funds for 10 boys and 10 girls to play soccer during the 2020 season. Total soccer programming costs for 20 children comes to $5,019. Can you help us reach this goal? Please consider making a donation to cover a portion of athletic programming fees for a child in Genesis Youth Foundation. Together, we can help level the playing field for youth in our community.
