Giving Tuesday a big push for local charities

By Tim Kowols


Charities in Door and Kewaunee counties hope to benefit from the publicity of Giving Tuesday. Following three of the biggest spending days of the year, Giving Tuesday began in 2012 as a way to celebrate the generosity of giving. Door County President and CEO Bret Bicoy says the extra push to support charities has been good for organizations locally.





According to, a total of $2.5 million was raised last year on the special day with the average gift around $120. We have a link to the Door County Community Foundation to learn more about how you can make an impact locally.
