Today is Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving to encourage philanthropy and celebrate generosity. #Giving Tuesday has been happening on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving since 2012 to begin the holiday giving season and inspire people to take action to improve their communities. Consider giving your time, skills, voice, dollars and goods to your favorite charities, or pay it forward and help others.
As a nonprofit organization, the core mission of the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region is to strengthen our community for current and future generations– a calling that encompasses not only personal philanthropy, but also broader efforts to strengthen our charitable community. By serving as a knowledge resource, catalyst, partner, convener, mentor and investor, your Community Foundation helps donors, professional advisors and nonprofit organizations improve the quality of life for all, forever.
The Community Foundation’s role in building these vital connections is a direct result of the contributions thoughtful donors and friends have made to our Friends of the Foundation Fund over the years. The Friends of the Foundation Fund supports the Foundation’s mission and annual operations. Continued gifts to this fund help us effectively steward the charitable dollars that have been entrusted to us, to engage people and organizations in giving that sustains our community and to provide thoughtful, creative leadership to address community needs.
Your support the of the Friends of the Foundation Fund, no matter the amount, helps the Foundation continue to build upon this important work and makes a difference in our community. Together, we can truly make the Fox Valley a better place to live, work and play for everyone.
