Local Nonprofits Seek Support on 'Giving Tuesday'

More than 60 non-profits in Bucks County have joined together to promote Giving Tuesday, which is Dec. 3.

We had Black Friday, Cyber Monday and now it's time for Giving Tuesday. 

Local non-profit organizations are making it easy for you to give through the creation of the Giving Tuesday Bucks website.

More than 60 Bucks County nonprofit organizations have joined together to participate in Giving Tuesday, which is Dec. 3. Local charities that serve everybody from the poor and homeless to sick children and local artists have formed a coalition to urge the general public to give a little back to the community.

Donations can be made right now on the Giving Tuesday Bucks website. Simply go to the list of participating non-profits, click on the 'Give Now' button, which will take you to each organizations donation page, and make an electronic payment.

Some of the participating nonprofits in Bucks County include:
  • A Woman's Place
  • Animal Lifeline
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters
  • Bucks County Children's Museum
  • Bucks County Housing Group
  • Bucks County SPCA
  • Central Bucks Family YMCA
  • James A. Michener Art Museum
  • Newtown Library Company
  • Pickering Manor
"Basically, we want everybody to give thanks on Thursday, get good deals, then give back to the non-profits," said Melissa Mantz, Development Director for the Bucks County Housing Group. 

Partnered by the Bucks County Herald, Giving Tuesday Bucks is a charitable effort inspired by last year's success by the 92nd Street Y in New York and other organizations that raised more than $10 million in donations around the country. The coalition of local non-profits reflects a spirit of cooperation from charities that rely heavily on private donations for funding.

Giving Tuesday Bucks begins on Dec. 3. Donations can be made right now by clicking on a participating non-profit and navigating to the organization's website.
