The Ottawa County Community Foundation is encouraging area residents and businesses to take part in Giving Tuesday on Dec. 3.
Following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a day set aside to celebrate and support charitable nonprofit organizations that serve communities. The national initiative was established in 2012 with a goal to remind people that holidays are about giving back.
Local charitable organizations add so much to the quality of life in Ottawa County. Donations both large a small make a big difference and help charitable groups achieve their goals. Giving directly to the Ottawa County Community Foundation supports the foundation’s charitable grant program and scholarships made possible through endowed funds.
