GivingTuesday is a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Our Fundraising Goal for this year is $60,000! And we have a $50k match.
What is #GivingTuesday, anyway?
GivingTuesday is a day that encourages people to give back in whatever ways they can. While many people feel a strong distaste for the holiday shopping season, GivingTuesday provides a wholesome and helpful outlet to them while changing the focus to giving instead of spending.
Considered by many as the day that kicks off the giving season, it directly follows three major shopping days: Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. The date for 2021 will be Tuesday, November 29.
Make sure to follow Erie on all our social media channels before the big day!
For nearly 65 years, and even amidst a pandemic, Erie has kept our doors wide open so that our most vulnerable neighbors can count on us for the care and resources they need to live their healthiest lives. We cannot do this work without you!
When you donate to or fundraise for Erie, your actions directly impact the lives of our patients who rely on Erie for high-quality, comprehensive, and compassionate healthcare, as well as access to resources that impact their and their family's health.
