What is Giving Tuesday?

We know about

  • Black Friday
  • Small Business Saturday
  • Cyber Monday

Giving Tuesday was started in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation as a response to the commercialization and consumerism in the post-Thanksgiving season (Black Friday and Cyber Monday).

But what is Giving Tuesday in Albion?  The Giving Tuesday woven heart logo is remodeled here with Albion events and opportunities that were made possible by gifts large and small.

General Guide – Issue XXXIII is the Giving Edition, which is sponsored by Albion Community Foundation.

The topics here are examples of programs that are helped with your donations.

Several Albion young people were able to take a memorable trip to Albion’s Sister City Noisy-le-Roi France in 2015 thanks to a special arrangement made possible by Albion Community Foundation. We will be posting more information about the trip later. For now, learn more about Albion’s Sister City, by visiting the official City of Albion web page about the sister city committee.
