Deadline Nears for PHF Giving Tuesday Applications

The Portage Health Foundation is taking applications from qualified non-profits for their Giving Tuesday matching donation program.

This year, Giving Tuesday will be December 1st – right after the big Christmas spending days…

“We try to put all the capitalism behind us on Giving Tuesday, to celebrate the non-profits that do so much for our community.”

Mike Babcock from the Portage Health Foundation says they’re looking for registered non-profits that are offering programs in line with their health and wellness mission…

“…the basic idea of making a healthier community, which is all we’re trying to do on a daily basis.”

For the partners it selects, the Foundation will match donations they receive, up to a certain point. Over the past three years, the day has raised nearly $700,000, with $290,000 coming from the matching grants.

The process is simple…

“It’s about a five-minute application, at most.”

…but the application deadline is this Friday. Visit PHFGive.org to learn more.
