When people look for advice on a restaurant or want to know what a neighborhood is like, a trusted friend or local resource is usually the first place to turn. This year, the Catalogue is applying this thinking to the nonprofit sector, and on #GivingTuesday (Tuesday, December 2nd), we aim to be the go-to local resource for community-minded donors, with dozens of our local charities promoting #GivingTuesday campaigns on the Catalogue website.
In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the giving community comes together for #GivingTuesday, a 24-hour global day of giving to kick off the giving season.
Some of the region’s best small charities will be promoting their #GivingTuesday fundraising campaigns on the Catalogue website. Charities will be competing for $10,000 in prizes — sponsored by the Lainoff Family Foundation — across a number of categories. Donors can easily search for their favorite charities by name, or area of interest, such as nature, arts, education, or human services.
