Giving Tuesday
December 1, 2020

Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

We are participating in Giving Tuesday for the first time, and are excited to join this global generosity movement.

Donate today to help transform our communities in Yolo County.
