With #GivingTuesday and the end of the year right around the corner, the Bartlesville Community Foundation (BCF) is your one stop shop for all things charitable giving. The BCF is proud to host funds that support everything from youth services, the arts, animal welfare, downtown revitalization, feeding the hungry, and much more. So this year, as you consider where you want your giving dollars designated, stop by the BCF website to discover the many ways you can impact positive change in the Bartlesville community.
#GivingTuesday is a global movement of growing charitable giving occurring the Tuesday following Thanksgiving… After the ever popular Black Friday, Shop Small Saturday, and Cyber Monday. By the time #GivingTuesday comes around, many find themselves in shopping comas but the BCF encourages you to remember the dollars you saved waiting in line for the best deals on Black Friday and to give some of that savings to a nonprofit organization on the BCF’s website. According to #GivingTuesday’s 2017 Insight Report, #GivingTuesday in 2016 raised more than $180 million in the United States alone. A gift of any size can make a huge difference to nonprofits as they work to strengthen their communities. Also remember, giving financially is not the only way to reach your philanthropic goals. Although #GivingTuesday’s primary focus is tracking monetary donations, it’s also a day for you to get out and volunteer or donate items like clothes or furniture as you make room for that newest Black Friday find.
