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, and local celebrities such as emcee Jimmy Tingle, 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.
Giving Tuesday Somerville is a collaborative fundraising initiative of: Community Action Agency of Somerville; CORES, Inc; Family Equality Council; Groundwork Somerville; Massachusetts Alliance of Portuguese Speakers; Mystic Learning Center; Respond, Inc; Second Chances; St. Patrick’s Shelter; Somerville Cambridge Elder Services; Somerville Community Access Television; Somerville Community Corporation; Somerville Homeless Coalition; Somerville Local First; The Welcome Project.
