Following the Thanksgiving holiday each year, shoppers flock to events such as Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. These events offer limited-time only discounts, and mark the official start to the busy Q4 holiday shopping period for many retailers.
Here at the Missoula Area Chamber of Commerce, we celebrate all of these events and the great benefits they bring to our local economy. And that includes today’s celebration, Giving Tuesday, which to many represents a greater alignment with the “true meaning” of the holiday season.
Our non-profit Chamber members can be found on our online Business Directory here. Whether it’s children or puppies, healthcare or hunting, Missoula has an organization fighting for a cause that means something to you, and it needs your support. Many organizations even have donation matches set up for today only in order to maximize your investment. Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to give back to our local non-profits that together create the fabric of this community we call home.
We also suggest you consider a donation to the Foundation of the Missoula Area Chamber of Commerce. As a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit that funds educational efforts on business topics, the Foundation helps fund popular programs such as scholarships to Leadership Missoula.
If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation, you can mail a check to the Foundation of the Missoula Area Chamber of Commerce, PO Box 7577, Missoula, MT 59807.
No matter what organization you give to, how many donations you make, or how large or small those donations are, we invite you to take part in a Giving Tuesday donation that will give back to the Missoula community for generations to come. Thank you for joining us on our mission of #movingmissoulaforward on this #givingtuesday!
