Today is Giving Tuesday, December 1, 2020. Nonprofits across the country are struggling during this pandemic due to a decline in donations from the pandemic. 

If we all got our spare change and donated to a local nonprofit, we can make the world a better place. One donation can have a huge impact, no matter the size. 

Nonprofits have faced a 6% decline in giving due to the pandemic, according to AFPG Global, while the Chronicle of Philanthropy states that 73% of charities worldwide have seen a decline in contributions. 

In the Columbia Basin and Wenatchee areas, there are some amazing nonprofit organizations that could use your support today on Giving Tuesday. Make a difference. Change lives.

Good point. If you can spare something, do it. If you need something, go ask for it.

Also, you can use Charity Navigator to determine if a charity is any good and see how much the CEO makes.
