Community Foundation Helps Nonprofits for Giving Tuesday Movement
Tue, 28 Nov 2017 06:00:58 EST
A reminder, the "Giving Tuesday" event is in effect today (28).
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), it follows recognized shopping events of Black Friday, Shop Local Saturday and Cyber Monday. The hope is that people will set aside a few minutes to give back to their community through charities and causes they support.
The Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan is helping local nonprofits participate, through its website and social media to showcase and manage donations for nonprofits that registered and met IRS tax requirements to operate as a nonprofit. In 2017, over 41-thousand dollars was raised.
