GivingTuesday is the first Tuesday in December (this year that’s December 1!), and it is an annual global day of giving that helps to raise funds and awareness for important causes everywhere. In Somerville, 14 nonprofit organizations are joining forces to collaborate on a second-annual joint fundraising effort as part of the international GivingTuesday program.
GivingTuesday is more than just a single-day event. Leading up to December 1, each partner organization will be featured for a week by all collaborators.
Our goal is to raise $50,000 for the participating nonprofit community of Somerville. Funds are shared equally among participants. Help us get there!
Checks can be made out to Groundwork Somerville at 24 Park Street # 7, Somerville, MA 02143. Please put GivingTuesday Somerville in the memo line. Online giving coming soon. #giveLocal
The effort culminates in a big fabulous celebration on GivingTuesday, and anyone who contributes to the fundraising effort is invited! This year’s event will take place at the Arts at the Armory on December 1st. Save the date!
