What is the Give Local Campaign?

We know how challenging this past year has been. Throughout 2020 we have collectively experienced a global pandemic, economic hardship, reckonings with racial injustice, and so much more. During such a difficult time, it is possible to miss the good still being accomplished around us.

Local nonprofits have been showing up for our community during this pivotal moment. These organizations have been feeding and housing our most vulnerable neighbors, lifting up the political and artistic voices of marginalized groups, and empowering our youth to become tomorrow's leaders. COVID-19 has exacerbated existing inequities and needs in our communities, yet these nonprofits have risen to the occasion, despite often experiencing resource limitations and challenges themselves. As we head into a new year, community-based nonprofits are still addressing continued hardships - which means that they need our continued support. 

The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, the world comes together each year for a day of generosity. This #GivingTuesday, we ask that you’ll explore this site and choose to support some of these organizations making a difference close to home. The need in our region is still great, and the nonprofits working to address it need your support. After all, this is our community, our home, and our responsibility.
