Giving Tuesday, Dec. 3, is the global day of giving celebrated the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. On this #GivingTuesday, GEICO Military has generously pledged to match gifts made to Armed Services YMCA — up to $25,000.
“Strengthening Our Military Family is not just a slogan at the Armed Services YMCA, they live it every day!” Kevin Isherwood of GEICO Military said. "Thus, GEICO Military is proud to partner with Armed Services YMCA in matching funds for the many programs that support our junior enlisted members and their families. Remember, GIVE BIG on Tuesday.”
This generous matching gift is part of an increase in support by GEICO Military of Armed Services YMCA. GEICO Military provides financial assistance to many worthy organizations that support our military members and their families.
“We thank GEICO Military for their generous commitment,” William French, President/CEO Armed Services YMCA, said. “This match means we’ll be able to continue our support of military families. This support will be an investment in our service members and their families, which is ultimately an investment in the safety and well-being of our country.”

Every gift provides services and programs that strengthen our military family. A tax deductible donation (Tax ID #36-3274346) to the Armed Services YMCA makes a significant difference in the lives of currently serving military service members and their families. A gift of $100 covers the cost of a parent-child pair’s participation in an interactive education program for parents and children ages 2-5. A gift of $400 supports a military child’s participation in a 10-week after-school character development program designed to increase resiliency and help them handle the challenges of life in a military family. A gift of $500 gives a military child a week at residential summer camp.
