Giving Tuesday

Adam Martin | F5 Project Events | November 15, 2023


Giving Tuesday, November 28th, is an opportunity to make our community stronger, one act of giving at a time. And to make your giving go further, we’re partnering with Thrivent! This year on Giving Tuesday, Thrivent will amplify your impact by matching $1 for every $2 raised. Plus, all online processing fees will be covered by Thrivent, meaning 100% of your gift will go right to our organization.

To celebrate, our team will spend the day at Thunder Coffee in West Fargo. The Thunder Coffee team has created a special, limited edition drink – Opportuni-TEA Latte! This cozy drink will be made of mint tea and honey ginger syrup with milk of choice and can be served hot or iced. Thunder Coffee has pledged to donate $2 to F5 Project for every Opportuni-TEA Latte sold. You can get this drink at either Thunder Coffee location (West Fargo or Downtown Fargo) starting on Monday, November 20th through Giving Tuesday, November 28th.

Also joining in on the fun, Dakota Property Services is donating $25 for every home or business that gets holiday lights installed from now through Giving Tuesday, November 28th. Don’t stress about decorating your house with Christmas lights this year, let Dakota Property Services handle it for you! And when the winter is over, they will take down and store your lights so you can sit back and enjoy the holidays. Request a quote at or give them a call at 701-339-2063.

So get involved and donate this Giving Tuesday. You can celebrate from near or far as you follow along on social media! We’ll be giving updates, sharing stories, and celebrating your giving as we aim to continue to move our mission forward.
