As the Upper Peninsula’s capacity building organization, Grow & Lead is reaching out to nonprofits from across the region to coordinate an Upper Peninsula wide #GivingTuesday campaign. The #give906 campaign was developed in 2018 by a committee of local nonprofits that participate in #GivingTuesday, with the goal of encouraging residents of the U.P. and those who hold the U.P. close to their heart to consider giving to an organization in the 906 area code. 

Planning for #GivingTuesday will begin on Monday, August 5. We are recruiting volunteers to participate on the committee. The #Give906 Committee Member responsibilities include:

  • Meeting virtually monthly to bi-weekly 
  • Providing feedback on designs
  • Brainstorm funding sources for campaign assets 
  • Promote the campaign in the community

The committee’s first meeting is scheduled for Monday, August 5 at 10 a.m. The meeting will be virtual. If you’d like to be involved, please sign up on the form below. Questions can be sent to Victoria at vleonhardt@glcyd.org.
