Giving Days in Alaska
Throughout the USA, cities, counties, and geographical areas hold events where individuals and companies are invited to contribute money to local non-profit organizations. Since the Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization as defined by the IRS, we are able to participate in these wonderful fundraisers that benefit hundreds of local organizations each event. Often during giving days there are donation matches available, prizes given to non-profits or donors, and even local events to help people learn about all of the local non-profit organizations.
#GivingTuesday - Kick off the holiday season by supporting a homeless Italian Greyhound in Alaska on #GivingTuesday, a national day of giving to your favorite charities. Support a tougher-to-adopt dog throughout the holidays on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
In conjunction with giving days, individuals can check with their employer to see if contributions may quality for an employer matching program. Such programs allow your donations to double in some cases and help twice as many Italian Greyhounds!
