The Knox County Community Foundation will again host a Giving Tuesday event on Tuesday, December 3, focused on building permanent endowments for charitable organizations serving Knox County. This year, $40,000 is available to match gifts dollar for dollar for these funds.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Any gift received on Giving Tuesday from individuals and groups to add to or to establish a new designated fund will be matched dollar for dollar.

Gifts will be accepted online at or from 8:30 to 4 pm at the Foundation office located inside Old National Bank at 20 N. Third Street, Suite 301 in Vincennes.

A $5,000 gift is all that’s needed to establish a new fund. Those interested in establishing a new fund on Giving Tuesday should contact the Foundation in advance at 812.886.0093.
