Introduction to 2017 Program

Published on 10/10/2017 10:35 am by Joanne Olnhausen


#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 is November 28, 2017. We are promoting local giving by dubbing our giving day, #GivingTuesdayNWO. You will find information sections below for both nonprofits and donors. 

Toledo Community Foundation and The Blade are excited to announce for the second time the availability of a $5,000 award for one area nonprofit organization who participates in #GivingTuesdayNWO. Organizations that successfully register and participate in the matching grant program will automatically be entered into a random drawing.
