The Somerville nonprofit community has embarked upon a new journey of collaborative fundraising: Giving Tuesday Somerville. This holiday season, 14 nonprofit organizations are joining forces to collaborate on a first-annual joint fundraising effort as part of the international Giving Tuesday program. Giving Tuesday is an annual global day of giving that helps raise funds and awareness for important causes everywhere.
In our community, Giving Tuesday Somerville will be the 21st Century version of a telethon. Hosted on SCATV, this telethon will have many traditional elements, as well as new twists. An exciting program of live entertainment, expert panel discussions, public service announcements, and local celebrities will help us to raise $50,000 for the nonprofit community in Somerville.
