Applications have officially opened for Portage Health Foundations’ (PHF) #GivingTuesday. Non-profit organizations who are interested in partaking in the 6th annual #GivingTuesday in the Copper Country are encouraged to apply.
#GivingTuesday happens on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, November 29, as a way for the community to give back to the non-profit organizations that make Houghton, Keweenaw, Baraga, and Ontonagon county a happier and healthier place. The Portage Health Foundation will match a portion of community donations.
“Our evolution with #GivingTuesday has come quite a ways over the last five years and we can’t wait to see what will happen in 2022,” said Michael H. Babcock, director of marketing and communications at PHF. “The application process has helped us bring in many new non-profits over the last couple of years. We’re looking forward to seeing what organizations raise their hand to be part of this incredible fundraising event this year!”
To be eligible, an organization must be a charitable non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) IRS determination, provide their certified financial audit and/or 990, must be current with their tax status and have their License to Solicit, must not be a religious or educational institution, have a mission related to Portage Health Foundation's Strategic Goals and Objectives or raise funds for a specific project that relates to those pillars and the organization must be domiciled in Baraga, Houghton, Keweenaw or Ontonagon counties.
The application is nearly identical to last year’s application, so it won’t take our hopeful non-profit partners long to fill out. The only additions are upload fields which have been added so you can upload your 990 and License to Solicit. Please submit your last filed 990 with the IRS. If this filing is not current, we will also need proof of granted time extension.
The application is live now at phfgive.org/givingtuesday. Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, October 2, 2022. If you have any questions, contact the Portage Health Foundation at (906) 523-5920 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
