#GivingTuesday™ is a national day of giving at the start of the holiday season that celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations.  Toledo Community Foundation and The Blade have partnered to support local nonprofits in this effort by promoting the program and encouraging donations through a matching grant opportunity. This year, #GivingTuesdayNWO was on November 29, 2016. We are promoting local giving by dubbing our giving day, #GivingTuesdayNWO. You will find information sections below for both nonprofits and donors.
