Meet our Non-Profit Partners

Our partners for the 2022 #GivingTuesday have been chosen. With at least 2 nonprofit organizations servicing the 4 counties of the Copper Country. 

Portage Health Foundation (PHF) has aided in more than $1.9 million in donations to local non-profit organizations in the Houghton, Keweenaw, Baraga, and Ontonagon counties through #GivingTuesday. Held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday is a kick-off to the holiday giving season, where individuals can give back to the community and donate to the organizations that mean the most to them.

What to expect during #GivingTuesday

Donations will be open from November 2, 2022 until the day of #GivingTuesday, November 29. Throughout the month leading up to #GivingTuesday, we encourage individuals to learn more about our non-profit partners and to hopefully make a donation to the one(s) they feel are closest to their hearts. #GivingTuesday is more than just about money, though. PHF wants the community to build relationships with these organizations and create long-term partnerships. All proceeds donated before and on #GivingTuesday will be given 100 percent to the non-profits, aiding them to succeed in their missions within the community.

Will my donation be matched?

Yes. All donations made during #GivingTuesday will be matched. Portage Health Foundation is matching dollar-for-dollar up to $200,000. If more than $200,000 is donated, non-profits will receive a portion of the $200,000 equal to the proportion of total donations they brought in. For example, if $500,000 was donated and they brought in $50,000 of that, they would have brought in 10% of the total, and would receive 10% of the match. That would mean $50,000 was donated and PHF is matching with $20,000 in additional funds. Every penny donated to the nonprofits goes to the nonprofits. PHF covers all fundraising expenses, including advertising, staff time and credit card fees.
