As part of its 25th anniversary, The Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation partnered with local nonprofit organizations to match gifts made to registered agencies in Hancock County on #GivingTuesday.
"#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving," givingtuesday.org
Individuals, families, businesses and community organizations come together to give back after the holiday shopping weekend on this designated Tuesday each year. The emphasis on charity this one day is an unprecedented opportunity for nonprofit organizations. In 2017, The Community Foundation helped celebrate the occasion by offering a match. Up to $500 was matched per organization who registered for the match in advance.
