Introduction to 2021 Program

#GivingTuesday™ is a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 30, 2021, charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. Greater Toledo Community Foundation encourages northwest Ohio nonprofit organizations to participate in this global day of giving by offering eligibility to receive one of two $5,000 grant awards to charities that register and participate in the local campaign, #GivingTuesdayNWO. 

Organizations that register for the grant program prior to GivingTuesday, participate in the day of giving by collecting contributions via online donation, cash, check or from a Donor Advised Fund at Greater Toledo Community Foundation, and complete a results survey are eligible to be selected for one of two grant awards issued. A random selection process will be utilized to identify organizations from the following categories:

  • Large Organization Category – for organizations with an annual operating budget more than $500,000
  • Small Organization Category – for organizations with an annual operating budget less than $500,000

    Please review all of the information below to ensure your nonprofit follows all the steps to qualify for this award.
