What A Difference A Day Makes!

TOLEDO, OHIO, March 7, 2018 - “GivingTuesday” is a global day of giving, and happens on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. This day of giving is fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. For the fifth year, our local nonprofit organizations have benefitted – in the 2017 calendar year to the tune of over $710,000. What a difference a day makes!

Toledo Community Foundation, in partnership with The Blade and The Center for Nonprofit Resources, introduced #GivingTuesdayNWO in 2013 to encourage nonprofits to begin online giving programs and encourage donors to make local giving a priority. The initiative has proven to help build the capacity of nonprofits of all sizes and with diverse missions, as evidenced by growth in the number of organizations participating in online giving and an increase in the amount of December fundraising revenue realized by our local agencies.

Toledo Community Foundation, through the generosity of local donors and corporations, offered a matching grants program for northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan nonprofit organizations participating in #GivingTuesdayNWO. The combined efforts of these donors and corporations with the nonprofits resulted in more than $710,000 being distributed to worthy causes in Toledo and northwest Ohio.

During the week of April 2, 2018, Toledo Community Foundation will be disbursing the matching grants to 155 local organizations. Additionally, a special random drawing was held from all of the local organizations that participated in #GivingTuesdayNWO 2017, and one lucky winner was chosen to receive an award of $5,000. That award goes to the National Exchange Club Foundation. The National Exchange Club Foundation is the fundraising arm of The National Exchange Club, supporting Exchange Club members as they inspire communities to become better places to live through projects in Americanism, Community Service, Youth Programs, and the National Project – the prevention of child abuse.

#GivingTuesdayNWO will take place this year on November 27, 2018.
