Like many of us, local charitable organizations faced extra challenges this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some organizations were forced to close their doors, some were called upon to expand their services in a time of need, and over half of the participating organizations reported that they were forced to cancel a fundraising event this year.
And that is where Giving Tuesday comes in. Giving Tuesday is a day for anyone, anywhere to give – and to make a difference for a local organization by giving together. It is our hope that this campaign will help the participating organizations fill a gap and provide much needed funding.
Many organizations have created profiles with more information about their missions and programs. Click on any of the organizations below to begin.
