Text at the top reads This Hanukkah, help light the path forward. Double your impact when you give today. Hanukkah candles line the bottom, and flames flicker on from left to right. The left has a $0 marker, and on the right there's a marker that reads GOAL: $10,000.

Hanukkah is a celebration of making the impossible possible โ€” and something special is possible today!

To celebrate Hanukkah and Giving Tuesday, our former Board Chair, Mamie Kanfer Stewart, will be matching each gift we receive today, up to $10,000.

I know you have many opportunities to give today. If you believe in the work of Bend the Arc, I hope youโ€™ll join me in continuing the Jewish tradition of fighting for justice.

Help us reach our goal with a gift of $18 this Giving Tuesday. Every dollar you give will be matched, doubling your impact.

"When I take action with Bend the Arc, I feel hopeful about the future we are building together for our children and generations to come.

This work is part of the Jewish tradition I will pass down to my daughters as they grow up โ€” just as my parents and grandparents passed this Jewish tradition of social justice down to me and my siblings."

โ€” Mamie Kanfer Stewart
Bend the Arc Board Chair, 2016-2021

If youโ€™ve never given to Bend the Arc, this is a perfect opportunity to have your gift double in impact. And it matters: In the coming year, we will continue to take on the most crucial fights of our time โ€” working to defeat fascism and antisemitism in America, and building a country thatโ€™s truly for all of us.

We're up against politicians who will do and say anything to hold onto power, no matter who is harmed in the process. The stakes are high, but weโ€™ve come together to protect our democracy and make the impossible possible before, and we can do it again.

Donate $18 today to power our movementโ€™s work for justice in the year ahead. Your gift will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, when you give today.

With gratitude for your partnership in this work and the fights ahead,

Stosh Cotler, CEO
Bend the Arc

PS: Each night of Hanukkah we add a candle to our hanukiah, just as we add more people to our Bend the Arc community each year โ€” strengthening our movement and building our power. When you donate to Bend the Arc this Hanukkah and Giving Tuesday, youโ€™ll double your impact and join with progressive Jews across the country rising up to light the path forward.
