GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on November 30, 2021, and throughout the year.
The Friends of Extension Foundation makes a difference in the lives of individuals and families in our community by supporting the good works of extension programs in Douglas and Sarpy Counties. The Foundation also hosts the Douglas County Fair.
Donations have made possible the financial support to the following:
- Support of all the Master Gardener’s horticultural demonstration gardens in Douglas and Sarpy Counties.
- Early Childhood Outdoor Education Efforts
- STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Agricultural, & Math programs for youth
- 4-H Youth in Douglas and Sarpy Counties
- Vegetable Garden Insect Publications available at the Extension Office
- Food Safety/Science Programing
- Urban Agricultural Initiatives
People demonstrate generosity in many ways on GivingTuesday. Whether it’s helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving to causes we care about, every act of generosity counts. GivingTuesday has raised billions of dollars for critical causes around the world and gets billions of impressions on social media from people and organizations speaking up for the causes that matter to them and encouraging others to get involved in their communities.
“GivingTuesday inspires people all around the world to embrace their power to drive progress around the causes they care about, not just on one day but throughout the year.” said Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s CEO, and co-founder. “With country and community leaders, millions of organizations, and countless givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world.”
