In just one week, Village Connections is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.
#GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and kicks off the holiday giving season. This year, we’re partnering with GIVE65, a program of the Home Instead Foundation.
By now, you’ve probably received a copy of our Annual Appeal letter. If you’re thinking of making a contribution, Giving Tuesday is the perfect opportunity, as it is the only day during the giving season where we have matching funds available.
Timing is important to have a chance at the $5,000 in matching grants which are given on a first-donated, first-matched basis. We are asking you to visit www.give65.org/villageconnectionscolumbus. Here, you can also learn about the impact your gift will have on older adults in our community.
We encourage you to give as early as possible on December 1st (but not before),so we have a chance to receive up to $5,000 in matching funds. Through your support and our partnership with GIVE65, we have the opportunity to make an even greater impact on the lives of older adults and their families. Thank you for your support!
While this year might look a little different, we hope you still have an enjoyable and safe Thanksgiving with the people you love.
