Take the chance to give on Giving Tuesday

With the community at the end of an extended weekend of shopping and buying, Kiwanis International Foundation invites the public to take the chance to give on Giving Tuesday, December 3.

Giving Tuesday is a new movement and a chance to use money in a way that fits a season of hope and generosity.

As a Giving Tuesday partner, the Kiwanis International Foundation offers two ways to give, through the Kiwanis Children’s Fund and the Eliminate Project.

The Kiwanis family’s Giving Tuesday goal is $10,000. Each gift makes a difference.
