A Time for Thanks

During this week of Thanksgiving, we especially want to thank YOU. Whether you are a generous donor, an important partner—or both—we couldn’t do the good work that we do in our community without you. It is through our collective generosity and compassionate spirit that we continue to build a strong future for this place that we call home.

Community Foundation Week

Community foundations represent one of the fastest-growing forms of philanthropy. Every state in the United States is home to at least one community foundation—large and small, urban and rural—working to advance solutions on a wide range of social issues. They build and strengthen communities in a multitude of ways, including providing the means for a wide range of donors to create permanent funds to positively impact lives.

Why Do People Donate to Charities at the End of the Year?

Giving Tuesday, an international day created in response to the consumerism that’s taken over the holidays, aims to raise awareness of this need. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are focused on buying material things — Giving Tuesday emphasizes giving back. It kicks off the holiday giving season and inspires people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
