#GivingTuesday is November 28th

After the frenzy of shopping from Black Friday through Cyber Monday, don’t forget #GivingTuesday on November 28! This is a great opportunity to support what really matters to you—the physical therapy profession and PT research being conducted, here in our state of Illinois.  This is the first time that the IPTF is participating in #GivingTuesday.

We are very excited to announce that we have a Matching Donor.  An 83 year old, former patient of physical therapy, has graciously offered to match up to $1,000 in donations made to the IPTF on #GivingTuesday!

This philanthropic gesture comes from her feeling that “having access to quality physical therapy is a right for everyone in Illinois”. Also, as a former college professor, she understands the importance of research and is committed to supporting PT research in Illinois.  How exciting is that! 

The IPTF Board has committed to supporting #GivingTuesday, as have students in our PT/PTA programs.  A statewide challenge has been announced, encouraging students from each of the physical therapy programs to donate at least $5 on #GivingTuesday. If 100% of their students donate on #GivingTuesday, than the IPTF will award them with a pizza party!

This year, the IPTF received a record number of applications for the $1,000 Research Grant, and we are hoping to raise enough on #GivingTuesday to be able to award more than one grant. 

Besides supporting PT research, all donations to the IPTF are 100% tax deductible.  So mark your calendars for November 28 and please donate to the IPTF on #GivingTuesday.

GIVE TODAY!
