The idea is for individuals to recognize how important nonprofits are to this region and give what they can in monetary donations or the gift of their volunteer hours.
Director of the Center for Non profit Leadership in Nevada County, Bill Neff says they want to build an even better Nevada County, and that starts with developing first-rate nonprofits and encouraging community involvement.
All area non profits are promoting #Giving Tuesday on their own websites, Facebook pages and Twitter accounts today. For more information people can go to the website www.cnlsierra.org
