Don’t miss an opportunity for one-stop giving at www.northstategives.org on Giving Tuesday, this year on November 27th. This worldwide recognized day of giving back follows two days of holiday ‘deals’ at Thanksgiving time – Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Shasta Regional Community Foundation is hosting North State Giving Tuesday, a 14-hour online giving event at www.northstategives.org, where a minimum donation of $10 may be made to any of over 170 registered local nonprofits. “Our sponsor, Redding Bank of Commerce, has been a steadfast supporter of North State Giving Tuesday since the beginning,” said Kerry Caranci, Chief Executive Officer of Shasta Regional Community Foundation. “They continue to make meaningful investments in our region through their ongoing support of this event and we are so grateful for this partnership.” A video depicting how the website interface works was produced for the Community Foundation by Pusher, Inc. and can be viewed on YouTube or the website homepage at www.northstategives.org.
Using the www.northstategives.org website, donors can give to as many of their favorite nonprofits as they choose; participating organizations are searchable by name, location or field of interest. Like bill-pay banking, a donor can register, schedule and choose any organization to support in advance, beginning November 13th and the transaction will process on November 27th. Gifts can be made using e-check, credit or debit card options. This year, gifts of stock are also accepted with special instructions available by contacting the Community Foundation staff. “This secure, online giving opportunity not only allows our community to recognize the hard work of our local nonprofits through donations, but also helps them win extra prize and incentive dollars so they can continue to do extraordinary work in our Shasta, Siskiyou and Tehama county communities,” said Program Officer Amanda Hutchings of the Community Foundation.
The online only event is from 6 AM – 8 PM PST on Tuesday, November 27th at www.northstategives.org. Follow the excitement of the day on social media via the Community Foundation’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram sites (Shasta RCF) and #NorthStateGivingTuesday.
