Giving Tuesday Okanagan Civic Movement

The Giving Tuesday Okanagan civic movement kicked off in 2015 with mayoral proclamation and celebration events in all 3 major cities: Penticton, Kelowna and Vernon. Our goal for 2019 is to raise awareness and encourage organizations and individuals to consider ways to give back to our communities. The Okanagan Community is very generous and we all contribute to it’s success.  Whether it’s time, talent or treasure, “Giving Tuesday”  is an opportunity to make a difference.
