Each year at Thanksgiving time, we have a day for giving thanks, two days for getting deals, and we also have a nationally recognized day for giving back – GIVING TUESDAY – this year it was on December 1st. Now you can “give where you live” for the benefit of our local nonprofits that do such important work Amador County. This year we gave this nationally recognized annual giving campaign a special twist. By making your online donations on Tuesday, December 1st, 2015 between 6 AM and 6 PM PDT, your dollars went further thanks to incentives of $10,000 provided by Amador Community Foundation to registered nonprofits in Amador County! Even though #GivingTuesday 2015 is over, you may still donate to participating nonprofit organizations at GiveAmador.org.
ONE STOP ANNUAL GIVING!
At our secure online web portal you can designate your donation to one, or many nonprofits in Amador County. Donors can be assured that their investment will go further. Thanks to our 2015 incentive partner, the Helen Fallis Endowment Fund of Amador Community Foundation, all contributions were matched! We currently have over 30 registered participating nonprofit organizations. If you do not see your favorite nonprofit, you may designate to them as well. We will get them included for next year’s incentives but will be sure to pass your donation along to them! Amador County Giving Tuesday is led by Amador Community Foundation. Thank you for your participation. Together, we CAN make a difference in Amador County!
