Start Your Holiday Season with a Gift to Benefit Many
WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?
#GivingTuesday is a global movement held annually the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – this year on November 27. Again this year, several Shiawassee area non-profit organizations are working together to celebrate #GivingTuesday as a community under the collaborative hashtag of #raiseUPshiawassee.
HOW CAN I GIVE?
Click on the “donate to . . ” button listed after the description of one, or more(!), of the groups listed below and you will automatically be transferred to an online giving site – where you can also learn more about the focus of each group’s non-profit work.
Stop by. You may also participate by mailing in donations or dropping them off at each group’s office (make sure to designate the gift to go toward #GivingTuesday or #raiseUPshiawassee).
Get a match. The Cook Family Foundation will be featuring one of the participating nonprofit organizations each business day in November on social media–AND will kickoff each featured nonprofit in their #GivingTuesday fundraising effort with a $500 donation and challenge! In addition, several of these nonprofits have found sponsors who will match online donations.
Many small gifts can make a big impact. What may seem like a small donation to you, when added with others, will mean a lot for these organizations. They depend on gifts like yours to provide needed services to our community.
Volunteer, by clicking on the “volunteer with . . ” button listed after their description. You will automatically be transferred to an online volunteer opportunity site – where you can also learn more about the focus of each group’s non-profit work.
Make a gift. A donation to a local charity is a great way to shop for those you love who seem to have everything already. The organization that receives your generous gift will acknowledge your gift directly to you or to someone special for whom you’ve given.
