SAF Forms First of Its Kind #GivingTuesday Collective in Lackawanna County

Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday

The Scranton Area Foundation has joined the movement to create a National Day of Giving, initiated by the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation, on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and bring it to Lackawanna County.

Giving Tuesday shows us that making a tangible, positive impact on the good of our community is affordable, attainable, and lies in our hands. Read over the list of projects and it becomes VERY clear: You do not need to be a millionaire to be a philanthropist and make a meaningful difference.

The donations you make to the nonprofits in this collective will go even further when you give on December 2 because the Scranton Area Foundation will provide a dollar for dollar match up to $500.00 for the money raised that day by each nonprofit. So, where will you be #GivingTuesday?
