Get Ready to Join the NCMS Foundation in the #GivingTuesday Movement

The NCMS Foundation has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on Nov. 28, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season. When the shopping is done, #GivingTuesday is meant to inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities by giving to the charities and causes they support.

#GivingTuesday kicks off the Foundation’s holiday season giving campaign. From #GivingTuesday on Nov. 28 to midnight Dec. 31, the Foundation aims to raise $10,000 and we need YOU to give. Ten thousand dollars is about half the cost of one year of educational loan repayment incentive for one primary care physician, PA or NP practicing in a rural or underserved community. Ten thousand dollars is roughly the cost of one Leadership College scholar for a year-long leadership development course. Through one provider, your gift will impact about 2,300 patients in the coming year, some of whom are our state’s sickest and most economically disadvantaged. On #GivingTuesday, please open your heart to these patients and give.

“We are happy to participate in this celebration of giving that is transforming how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. NCMS members have the rare opportunity to literally change a patient’s world every day. #GivingTuesday allows our members to join with other nonprofits, businesses and corporations as well as families and individuals to collectively create a better world,” said Robert W. Seligson, NCMS Foundation CEO.

Get ready! We’ll notify you when our #GivingTuesday webpage and donation site is open!
