KLCC Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Simply put, it is a day that encourages people to do good.

This year KLCC is marking Giving Tuesday in a few ways. At noon tune into a special episode of Oregon On The Record, in which host Michael Dunne and his guests discuss how regional non-profit organizations are collaborating to maximize their impact and make the best use of their resources.

Throughout the day we will be featuring non-profit organizations in our listening area. Read below to learn more about these organizations whose important work we are highlighting today.

Of course, KLCC's Giving Tuesday coverage — and all of the news and programs we offer — is only possible because of support from listeners and readers like you. If you consider KLCC to be an important part of our community, please consider making a donation today.
