Halton Gives

#HaltonGives

Building on the momentum of the Oakville Gives movement, we are excited to launch Halton Gives to expand our reach and engage the broader Halton community in celebrating the work of the amazing charities and non-profits that support the Halton region.

Halton Gives is a civic movement participating in the global Giving Tuesday initiative. Giving Tuesday is a chance to start off the giving season: a day dedicated to giving back and celebrating all of the important causes around the world, across Canada and right here in the Halton community.

Mark your calendars for Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019!

And think about how you’d like to help celebrate the day.

For individuals:
• Join our committee. Contact Halton Gives leaders, Karen Hudson and Kristen Curry, by email if you'd like to join us in helping to organize the day for our shared community of Halton.
• Get involved. Volunteer or host a fundraising event for an organization you care about.
• Help spread the word. Talk about Giving Tuesday and the importance of giving back, with all of your friends and family. Encourage them to get involved too.
