The Portage Health Foundation (PHF) has joined #GivingTuesday,
a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power
of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage
philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. We’re
Put Your Money Where Your Heart Is. This fundraising effort is
to help raise awareness, advocate for and help non-profits
throughout our four-county service area.
this year on November 27, 2018, #GivingTuesday is held
annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the US) 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 impactful ways to the charities and
causes they support.
The PHF feels strongly that we
can play a role in helping the non-profit sector outside of
our own granting. This year, we are using this one day,
charitable day of giving as a platform to advocate and
fundraise for other organizations. Our #GivingTuesday
initiative, Put Your Money Where Your Heart
the community to get on board and support the organizations
that mean the most to them.
All proceeds that are raised on November 27th will be
matched dollar for dollar by the PHF up to a cumulative
match of $100,000.00. One hundred percent of all monies
donated will be passed on to the appropriate organization!
