Tuesday, November 27 is Giving Tuesday

Nov. 21, 2012 null

We are on the cusp of the holiday shopping season with Black Friday and Cyber Monday on the heels of Thanksgiving.
This year we encourage you to support a new national movement gaining momentum, Giving Tuesday on November 27, which encourages support of local nonprofit organizations. 
The Community Foundation's Giving Cards provide an opportunity for you to purchase a meaningful holiday gift for loved ones, give back to our community and receive a charitable deduction.


  • Purchase Giving Cards at www.desmoinesfoundation.org/givingcards as a unique holiday gift. You receive a charitable tax deduction!
  • Pass it on! The person who receives the Giving Card selects any charitable organization he or she wishes to support at www.desmoinesfoundation.org/givingcards.
  • You've shared the joy of giving and now charitable organizations benefit as we build a better community together.

We wish you a joyous holiday season and Happy Thanksgiving!
