Pottawattamie County Community Foundation matches 20% for #GivingTuesday712

For #GivingTuesday712 on December 1, SHARE Omaha is thrilled to partner with Pottawattamie County Community Foundation (PCCF) to engage all Southwest Iowa nonprofits and community supporters.

To increase the power of the day, PCCF is generously adding a 20% match when donors use the code PCCF2020 at SHAREomaha.org, when the nonprofit adds to their PCCF endowment fund. This gift could add an additional $250,000 of support for Southwest Iowa organizations! 

The Council Bluffs metro helps one another, cares about each other. SHARE Omaha and PCCF believe that kind of optimism needs a celebration – a day with its own focus. Donna Dostal, president and CEO of Pottawattamie County Community Foundation, says she wants to inspire a giving spirit. “Generosity has many forms. Our community can grow its existing reputation for giving back on Giving Tuesday. We want to ignite that good.” 
 

Yes, it might look different this year without being able to assemble and celebrate in person – but doing good is “pandemic proof.” Write encouraging notes to nonprofit clients, patients, and frontline workers as an individual, family or as an office. Choose an organization’s wish list and fulfill items you feel will make a difference. If you're able, cash donations matter at any size and add up when all of us give. 

Share your acts of good on December 1 for #GivingTuesday712 and then join PCCF  from 6-7pm for a Virtual Happy Hour to celebrate. RSVP here.
