I didn’t know too much about Giving Tuesday, but I’ve received a quick education today thanks to email and social media.
There are lots of ways to give locally. There’s no way to list them all here, but here are a few local groups who would gladly accept your donations:
The Center For Women is always accepting donations for its outreach services and programming.
The United Way is one of the founding partners of Giving Tuesday. Visit Trident United Way’s website.
Locally based Blackbaud is also a founding partner.
As an NPR junkie, I have to add that ETV and ETV radio are also always looking for support.
And of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention The Post and Courier Foundation’s own Good Cheer Fund, which distributes money to six worthy local charities: Association for the Blind, Carolina Youth Development Center, Catholic Charities, the Lowcountry Food Bank, the Salvation Army and Star Gospel Mission.
There are also plenty of things you can do that don’t involve a financial commitment. Check out the list of ideas for families from the Giving Tuesday website for ideas you can use today and all year long.
