The Portage Health Foundation 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
Occurring this year on November 28, #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.
Health Foundation 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.

on November 28th will be matched dollar
