Wells Fargo to Match $5,000 Raised
November 27, 2017 [St. Petersburg, FL] – The Florida Holocaust Museum (The FHM) has announced its #GivingTuesday Seven Dollar Difference campaign to enable the Museum to share the lessons of the Holocaust with students across the State of Florida. Thanks to the generosity of Wells Fargo, The FHM’s #GivingTuesday donations received on November 28, 2017 will go farther than ever. Wells Fargo will match every dollar donated up to $5,000!
Each year, The FHM is overwhelmed with requests from schools that would like to bring their students to the Museum, but can not afford admission. A $7 donation pays for a Museum tour for one student, $35 brings five students to the Museum, and $105 brings a class of fifteen. All students should have the privilege to speak with a Holocaust Survivor while it is still possible.
Be sure to follow the hashtag #TheFHMGivingTuesday on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see what a difference $7 makes.
To support The FHM on November 28th for #GivingTuesday and to help bring a student, small group, or entire classroom to the Museum, please visit:
