Murfreesboro, TN — Giving Tuesday is a global initiative that encourages a day of generosity and giving, on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. #RCCGivingTuesday will be on Tuesday, November 30th, and focuses on over 30 Rutherford and Cannon County non-profit organizations with a 24-hour online fundraising event.
For the second year, United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties works with GiveGab to host Rutherford and Cannon Counties' Giving Tuesday. This provides non-profit organizations with a platform and resources to share their fundraising efforts, as well as opportunities to win additional prizes for day-of donations based on most money raised, most donors, and highest average gift. This furthers United Way’s commitment to being a community connector, while also providing community members with a clear way to donate to one or more verified non-profit organizations.
“The Child Advocacy Center is grateful to United Way for coordinating the local Giving Tuesday campaign,” said Child Advocacy Center Director Sharon De Boer. “You can give to your favorite cause or help multiple agencies. This is a wonderful opportunity to make a difference in our community.”
Following the Rutherford and Cannon Counties’ Giving Tuesday, the United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties will be hosting a Reception on December 1st at 4:30 PM at the Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the participating non-profit organizations and present prizes to those that placed in the following: Most Money Raised, Most Donors, and Highest Average Gift.
