Today is GivingTuesday!



Today is GivingTuesday! 

Please consider supporting our work at the Scranton Area Community Foundation with a donation on GivingTuesday. 

GivingTuesday is a global day of generosity that takes place on December 1, 2020. It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
The Scranton Area Community Foundation proudly supports the #GivingTuesday movement! On Saturday, November 28, 2020, the Scranton Times-Tribune published an article about the importance of #GivingTuesday. Our President and CEO, Laura Ducceschi, was quoted in the article. 

Together, we are stronger
