The C.G. Foundation announced in a statement that today, GivingTuesday, the organization is holding a matching gift challenge with Geico Military, which will triple-match all donations that the foundation receives up to $25,000.

GivingTuesday kicks off the generosity season by inspiring people to donate to causes on the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving — today.

“Coast Guard men and women are there in the moments we need them the most, saving lives, preserving our oceans and protecting our Nation,” Susan Ludwig, president, Coast Guard Foundation, said in a statement. “Your generous gift to our GivingTuesday matching gift challenge supports our mission to be there for service members and their families. This includes vital projects like our scholarship program, morale and wellness initiatives, and relief for families when a service member is lost in the line of duty.”

The non-profit organization is committed to strengthening the Coast Guard community and service by supporting members and families.
