Cure CMD to Launch Recurring Donor Campaign with #GivingTuesdayNow on May 5
To support nonprofits during this particularly challenging time, the #GivingTuesday folks have initiated a #GivingTuesdayNow campaign. Cure CMD will be participating in our own way, and celebrating our 12-year anniversary while we’re at it!
For two weeks, from Tuesday May 5 until our 12-year anniversary on May 19, we’ll be inviting our community to sign up to be a Recurring Donor. For many families, this is more convenient than a single, larger donation. Monthly or quarterly recurring donations automatically and securely deduct from a bank account or credit card of your choice. As always, anything and everything helps! Even $5 per month means a lot to us, and more than 80% of your funds go directly to programs that fulfill our mission to advance research and improve the quality of life for affected individuals and their families.
We’ll keep you updated about the campaign, which launches May 5.
