Portage Health Foundation – Giving Tuesday Initiative

Portage Health Foundation (PHF) is proud to announce 18 local non-profit organizations including Omega House are participating in its fourth annual Giving Tuesday program on Dec. 1. This year will feature a dollar-for-dollar match up to $200,000 total.

Giving Tuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. It’s meant to kick off the holiday giving season by inspiring people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

Through three years, this campaign has put nearly $700,000 into local non-profits through $383,312 in donations, and another $288,380 matched by PHF. Information on how to donate will be released closer to Giving Tuesday.
