Goal to raise $75,000, with at least $10,000 in matched incentives for local participating organizations.
Amador County, November 24, 2015 – Amador Community 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.
This year, Amador Community Foundation has given this nationally recognized annual giving campaign a special twist. By making online donations on Tuesday, December 1st between 6 AM and 6 PM PDT,your dollars will go further thanks to incentives of $10,000 provided by the Helen Fallis Endowment Fund of Amador Community Foundation. Donations received for Giving Tuesday will be matched up to $500 per participating nonprofit.
“During this national campaign, we are inviting people to give where they live, so we wanted to make it simple,” said Kathleen Harmon, Executive Director of Amador Community Foundation. The organization has set up a secure website (www.GiveAmador.org) with over 30 participating local nonprofits, so donors can give to one or more of their favorite organizations all from the same site. If their favorite nonprofit is not listed, they can designate them as the recipient and Amador Community Foundation will pass the donation along. “This is one way we can recognize the many nonprofits that do such important work here in Amador County” said Kathleen.
