#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.
Coming after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place December 3 and will kick off the giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.
This year Van Wert Civic Theatre will once again participate in the Van Wert County Foundation #GivingTuesday event. Any donation you make to our foundation-held Van Wert Civic Theatre Endowment Fund will be matched by the VWCF. For the 2019 #GivingTuesday event, the foundation will match up to $10,000 per charitableorganization endowment funds (COEFs) . On #GivingTuesday (December 3 only), individuals and businesses have the opportunity to donate to one or several foundation-held COEFs — essentially doubling the gift with a match from the foundation. ALL DONATIONS TO THE VWCT ENDOWMENT FUND SHOULD BE MADE TO THE VAN WERT COUNTY FOUNDATION .
A COEF is established by a charitable organization to provide support for the agency’s exempt purposes. The original gifted amount (principal) is permanently preserved, while income generated by the principal will benefit the named charitable organizations forever.
Check back here and watch social media for more details about donating on #GivingTuesday. Your options will include delivering your check in person to the Van Wert County Foundation on Dec 3, mailing your check to the Van Wert County Foundation to arrive prior to Dec 3, mailing a check to our PO Box made out to the Van Wert County Foundation (we deliver on Dec 3), or look for the online link for online donation to be posted on Dec 3.
