Today is #GivingTuesday, so please keep it local with #ILGive

Tuesday, Nov 28, 2017

* From the #ILGive website

#ILGive is Illinois’ official Giving Tuesday campaign. We’re connecting Illinois residents with causes they care about.

#ILGive (pronounced ‘I’ll Give’) is an initiative of Forefront, Illinois’ statewide membership association for nonprofits, grantmakers, public agencies, advisors, and sector allies. Forefront works to build a vibrant social impact sector for all Illinois. Through #ILGive, Forefront mobilizes Illinois nonprofits and foundations to increase individual giving across the state. Last year, #ILGive for Giving Tuesday raised $11.3 million for Illinois social good organizations, and our most recent campaign, #ILGiveCommunity, raised $127,795.33 across the state.

#ILGive is a 24-hour digital fundraising event that connects individuals with the causes that matter to them, and empowers donors to give to the local nonprofits that tackle our communities’ most critical issues. #ILGive raises money for our communities, brings new donors, and increases awareness about local nonprofits while leveraging the national marketing of #GivingTuesday.

Click here to browse through or search for organizations that are part of the “Giving Tuesday” push, which started early this morning and lasts through midnight tonight. You can see the “underdogs” (groups that haven’t raised much money yet) by clicking here. A list of groups which have the most donors and/or have raised the most money is here.

    Thank you for posting. I had never heard of this. Donated to a couple local charities.

    Slightly misleading. I know LAF (stupid name, since everyone has to say “formerly the Legal Assistance Foundation” anyway) is raising lots on social media, just not through the IlGive website. I trust and hope others are as well. But either way, GivingTuesday was a genius idea and while many dollars donated are ones that might otherwise come in response to end of the year appeals, this gets a younger generation and all of us who just throw away our endless stack of end of the year appeals.

    Posting after myself to also link to this story about the relationship between small community organizations and a decrease in crime. Just the sorts of organizations, of course, that were damaged so badly by the budget impasse and will be hurt even more if the proposed tax bill passes. All the more reason to find one or two or ten and donate. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/09/upshot/the-unsung-role-that-ordinary-citizens-played-in-the-great-crime-decline.html?rref=collection%2Fsectioncollection%2Fupshot&action=click&contentCollection=upshot&region=stream&module=stream_unit&version=latest&contentPlacement=10&pgtype=sectionfront
