Community Foundation Announces Giving Tuesday Matching Gift Program

Daviess County, Indiana, November, 2018—The Daviess County Community Foundation will host a Giving Tuesday event focused on building permanent endowment funds for their charitable partners. Giving Tuesday is global day of giving, celebrated in the United States on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving which this year is November 27. It kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

The Community Foundation is making $30,000 available to match new gifts to grow these endowment funds.
