Giving Tuesday is a movement that began in 2012 to promote charitable giving during the Thanksgiving holiday season. It has become an international phenomenon with billions of dollars donated online to nonprofit organizations on the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving Day.
Shasta Regional Community Foundation developed and launched North State Giving Tuesday (NSGT) in 2014 as an online networking and giving event for Shasta, Siskiyou, and Tehama county nonprofits. NSGT has significantly grown in popularity and impact each year, bypassing the $1,000,000 threshold in giving in 2017. Now in 2018, Tehama county nonprofits have been invited to participate in this exciting event. This event provides nonprofit organizations the opportunity to gain exposure and start relationships with new donors, and for the people in Shasta, Siskiyou and Tehama counties to come together to raise as much money as possible for participating organizations within a 14 -hour period.
North State nonprofits attend required workshops and complete a vetting application process to participate. Using this website, donors can choose to give toward as many of their favorite nonprofits as they desire. These organizations are searchable by name and field of interest.
The nonprofit sector is the heart and soul of the region, enriching our communities in immeasurable ways. Our region includes many incredible organizations that are doing extraordinary things. North State Giving Tuesday is a unique opportunity for the public to learn about the difference they make in our communities and a chance to express their gratitude by donating. North State Giving Tuesday is a time-limited donation period designed to expand and increase giving to local nonprofits that provide vital services that help sustain our region.
