Save the Date: Giving Tuesday


Giving Tuesday is a movement to create a national day of giving added to the calendar on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This Giving Tuesday, JVC Northwest is raising funds to support 13 current JVs who serve in ministry, advocacy, and direct service positions that are not funded by the AmeriCorps grant. These positions are crucial to our partner nonprofit agencies and the clients they serve, and JVC Northwest is committed to maintaining these positions. But, this means that JVC Northwest must cover cost of housing, utilities, food, transportation, medical co-pays, and living stipends for each of the 13 JVs.

So, what can you do? On December 3, visit our website and make a donation to JVC Northwest.Then, spread the word to family and friends using #GivingTuesday and #jvcnorthwest. With your support, we can make this Giving Tuesday a big success!
