There are so many organizations that depend on your generosity to keep going. Let this be a reminder that giving this time of year not only provides needed support, it also gives back to you. You are investing in your community!
Think about the arts organizations – music, theater, arts and education that enrich your life. Consider the social service organizations that protect, provide and lift up people you know who need support and help to address mental health, substance use, housing, health, LGBTQ, domestic and child abuse issues. Donate to the environmental issues that concern you. There is no end to the need locally and nationally.
Give yourself the satisfaction of helping organizations that need your support. It will be a feel-good gesture that makes a real difference. Remember when you give to non-profit organizations, you receive a break on your taxes as well.
Locally, the Bluegrass Community Foundation provides one portal to 195 non-profits who meet the extensive “GuideStar gold certified” criteria to participate. Each day from November 28- December 1, there are match funds that help make your donation go further. Please consider making a donation to the organization that speaks to you!
