#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. This year, #GivingTuesday falls on November 28. #GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.
The McKenzie Community Development Corporation is organizing an annual community-wide fundraising campaign around #GivingTuesday – McKenzie River Gives, a 24-hour period where citizens give back to the local organizations that work year round for the community. We as individuals are the major force in giving to our communities. In 2016 of the $390.05 billion contributed to nonprofit organizations in the USA, individuals gave 72% of the total.
Currently, participating groups and organizations in McKenzie River Gives include:
