Education Foundation Announces Giving Tuesday Drive

Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation

The Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation this week announced a $5,000 “one-day flash match” in an effort to spark donations from families districtwide.

Matching gifts from Frozen Fruit Company and Santa Monica Dental Arts, each totaling $2,500, are designed to “inspire our community to donate,” according to information provided by the foundation.

“We are excited to launch this one-day match for #GivingTuesday,” Ed Foundation Executive Director Linda Greenberg said in a written statement provided by the group. “Thank you to Frozen Fruit Company and Santa Monica Dental Arts for their generous gifts that will encourage others in our community to join them in making contributions for our students.”
