Giving Tuesday

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 calling it 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.

Occurring 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 Is encourages 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!
