The Somerville nonprofit community has embarked upon a new journey of collaborative fundraising: Giving Tuesday Somerville: Give Local.  This holiday season, 15 nonprofit organizations are joining forces to collaborate on a first-annual joint fundraising effort as part of the international Giving Tuesday program.  Giving Tuesday is an annual global day of giving that helps to raise funds and awareness for important causes everywhere. In our community, Giving Tuesday will be the 21st Century version of a telethon. Hosted on SCATV, this telethon delivers an exciting program of live entertainment, panel discussions, public service announcements, and local celebrities, helping us to raise $50,000 for the nonprofit community in Somerville.

Giving Tuesday Somerville takes place on December 2nd, 2014. Giving takes place from 12:01am-11:59pm online, while the telethon is hosted from 6-9pm on SCATV.

The purpose of sponsorship dollars is to underwrite the modest expense of the event (already donated in part by 3 Graces Productions and SCATV). Our goal is for 100% of proceeds after cost to go to the 15 participating charitable organizations. An additional use of sponsorship funding is to provide challenge matches as donor incentives. Sponsors of Giving Tuesday will have their logos and any message regarding local giving placed prominently on the Giving Tuesday website. All sponsors are also invited to attend the Giving Tuesday Telethon and give a live personal message!
