Foundation Challenge Grant

The global movement Giving Tuesday, an international day of giving, is a perfect time to donate to the International Catacomb Society (ICS). For one day only, on November 28, 2017, Facebook has waived transaction fees for all donations made on the ICS Facebook page and, in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, will match up to $50,000 in donations to individual nonprofits on that date between 8 a.m. and midnight (EST).* With your generous support and this extraordinary chance to obtain matching funds, ICS can continue and strengthen its mission of helping scholars from a broad range of national and cultural backgrounds realize and share their life's work.

Please take the special opportunity of Giving Tuesday to make a financial contribution to the ICS in any amount. Individual and corporate contributions to the ICS are fully tax-deductible, and will be recognized in the 2017 Annual Report. With a contribution of just $50 ($30 for students), you can join the International Catacomb Society and receive all member benefits. Naming rights to individual scholarships are also possible with an endowment gift.

Donations can be made by credit card or PayPal by using our secure donation link or by check to the International Catacomb Society, 217 Hanover Street, Suite 130413, Boston, MA 02113.

We are most grateful for your support!

Please share your generosity via social media by letting family and friends know about your support of the ICS campaign: #CatacombSociety #ShohetScholars #givingtuesday #unselfie

* Donations to nonprofits made through Facebook's charitable giving tools on November 28th will be matched up to $50,000 per nonprofit or $1,000 per fundraiser or donate button, until the $2 million in matching funds run out. The match will begin at 8AM EST (5AM PST).
