In 2015, over 50 cities and states led their own #GivingTuesday movements to benefit local nonprofits. This year, more than a dozen nonprofits in Yellow Springs have come together to coordinate a local #YSGivingTuesday campaign. Occurring this year on November 28, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support.
Give Today! Your contributions on Giving Tuesday will allow participating organizations to receive matching funds from the Yellow Springs Community Foundation. The Foundation has generously awarded $10,000 in matching funds to promote giving to our local nonprofits on this global day of giving. Choose the organization(s) you want to support by clicking on their logo below (including the YS Community Foundation logo at left). The link will take you directly to their online donation page and will open in a new window or tab, making it easy for you to return to www.ysgivingtuesday.com to give to all your favorite organizations on this special day! If you would like to learn more about these organizations, visit the “About Our Organizations” link above; links to their donation pages appear on each of these pages as well (“About Our Organizations” page is not available on touch screens). Thank you for giving!
