Giving back with the GoodGiving Challenge
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – So far this holiday season, you have given thanks and shopped until you dropped. Now, it is time to give back to your community.
Giving Tuesday kicks of the GoodGiving week-long challenge. It is your chance to give back to your local non-profits.
The GoodGiving Challenge started in 2011. Since then, it has raised over $8.5 million for 110 Central and Appalachia Kentucky charities.
This year, the E. E. Murray Family Foundation will match half of every donation, up to $75 thousand.
The challenge’s goal is to engage new donors and to teach people about the non-profits in their communities, so that they may continue to contribute money, or donate their time to the charity, in the future.
The 2018 GoodGiving Challenge runs through December 3.
