Where Your Donations Go

Thanks to the generous donations from our supporters, TLC has been able to provide scholarships to students at the Katherine Thomas School, purchase a van to transport our Outcomes recipients, and supply new hearing aids to children and adults. Visit Support TLC to learn more.

Celebrated every year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, #Giving Tuesday marks the beginning of the charitable season with a focus on holiday and year-end giving.

It is a simple idea. Join the movement and give – whether it’s some of your time, a gift, or the power of your voice in your local community. When we come together as individuals, communities, and organizations, we find a way to give back and share important ideas.

#GivingTuesday is one of the best ways to become involved in your own community. The movement connects diverse groups of individuals, communities, and organizations for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.

#GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 when the United Nations Foundation and New York City’s 92nd Street YMCA entered into a partnership. By combining resources and talents, the partnership launched a global movement that has engaged thousands of individuals and organizations worldwide. #GivingTuesday has become a global phenomenon fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

In 2017, over 274 million dollars were raised through online donations for a wide-range of causes in the United States. Large corporations, such as Google, Microsoft, Skype, Cisco, as well as international organizations such as UNICEF and Save the Children, have joined in the #GivingTuesday movement. In 2017, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced two million dollars in matching donations. #GivingTuesday has been praised as a way for individuals to give back and as an antithesis of the consumer-culture in the United States and across the globe.
