Once again, CGCI is participating in GivingTuesday, the global day of generosity that will take place this Tuesday, November 30, 2021.
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea — a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity. People show their generosity in a variety of ways during GivingTuesday. Whether it is helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes, everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts. When so much attention is given to what divides us, generosity brings people together across races, faiths and political views.
With this in mind, California Garden Clubs, Inc. is reaching out to individuals, clubs, districts and the general public to offer the opportunity to give a tax-deductible donation the CGCI Endowment and Scholarship Endowment Funds by participating in GivingTuesday 2021, the beginning of the charitable season, when many focus on holiday and end-of-year giving.
The two Endowment Funds were established in 2010 to provide a suitable vehicle to receive donations from those wishing to make a lasting contribution to the CGCI organization or to the Scholarship Fund. In 2020 (CGCI’s first year participating in GivingTuesday), $550 was donated to the Endowment Fund and $590 was donated to the Scholarship Endowment Fund — for a total of $1,140 for both Endowments! Let’s double that amount this year!
We hope you will consider participating in this global event. You may donate online via credit/debit card or PayPal account or send a check. The links to the donation forms are in the right sidebar.
