We're celebrating Givember!

Here at the Community Foundation, we believe #GivingTuesday is a celebration of some of the greatest American traditions” generosity, entrepreneurialism, and community. That’s why this year, we’re celebrating GIVEMBER!

What is Givember, you ask? It’s simple: all month long, we are celebrating, encouraging, and raising awareness about charitable giving. Then, on #GivingTuesday – we’re joining in the fun and giving surprise funding gifts to local nonprofits…but we need your help.

Here’s how it works: All month long, when you give $10 or more to the Community Foundation’s #GivemberFW campaign, we’ll give $100* in surprise funding to a local nonprofit in one of our four focus areas: Arts and Culture, Community Development, Education, or Health and Human Services. Even cooler, we’ll let you choose which focus area you want to support!

Arts and Culture

Community Development


Health and Human Services

Wait -

"So, if I give at least $10 dollars to the #GivemberFW campaign, I get to choose a focus area for the Community Foundation to give $100* of surprise grant funding to on #GivingTuesday??"


All month long, when you make a donation of at least $10 to the #GivemberFW campaign at the Community Foundation, we’ll give away $100* in surprise grant funding to a local nonprofit in one of our four funding focus areas…your choice!

So what are you waiting for?? Donate to the #GivemberFW campaign today, help us celebrate local philanthropy, earn $100* of surprise funding for a local nonprofit, and get ready for #GivingTuesday2017!
