05 Dec Miami Co. Makes a Mark on Giving Tuesday
The Miami County Community Foundation (MCCF) hosted their annual Giving Tuesday event, where community members mingled and celebrated the international day of generosity.
Community contributions combined with matching funds resulted in a Giving Tuesday total of over $46,000 for the MCCF! All donations will be put right back into the community through grants and scholarships in alignment with the foundation’s mission to improve the quality of life in Miami County now and forever.
Giving Tuesday, always held the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, brings the generosity of people all around the world together to make real change and year after year, Miami County exceeds the day’s sentiment.
“Thank you everyone that stopped by the Riverview Event Center for Giving Tuesday. Every gift large and small makes an incredible impact our community, providing support for scholarships to preschool students, free meals to the community, Christmas to families that are struggling with the rising cost of living, and other worthwhile causes in Miami county,” said MCCF Director of Development Heidi Wright. “We are humbled by the generosity of the many members of our community that share their time, talent, and treasure.”
