The Council relies on the generosity of supporters across the state and beyond to make a difference in the lives of people living with impaired vision. Giving Tuesday, a global giving movement celebrated the Tuesday after Thanksgiving each year, is an opportunity to help us pursue our mission.
By making a gift on Giving Tuesday, you’ll join donors like Matt Reetz in ensuring that people can benefit from the life-changing services, products and advocacy the Council provides.
Matt began supporting the Council after the Madison Audubon Society, which he serves as executive director, started partnering with the Council on the popular springtime Birding by Ear classes. He also was inspired by seeing how much longtime Audubon member Dorothy Haines benefitted from Council services.
“One of the things that makes Wisconsin so special is the generosity of people who know that in order to make our community better, you should donate to organizations that speak to you but that don’t necessarily serve you directly,” Matt explains.
Giving Tuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple concept: a way to encourage people to do some good with the money they didn’t burn through during Thanksgiving weekend shopping sprees. Today, millions of donations made on Giving Tuesday help lift up communities around the world. Please consider giving to the Council on November 30 at the Council website.
