More than a decade ago, the Weekly decided we could leverage our resources and create a new program for local philanthropy to support the nonprofit community. We first established the Monterey County Weekly Community Fund as a donor-advised fund at the Community Foundation for Monterey County (CFMC) back in 2000. In 2009, we created an annual appeal to our readers—Monterey County Gives!
Today, Monterey County Gives! is a special project of Monterey County Weekly in partnership with CFMC, the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, and our other major partners, enabling you to donate in traditional ways or through different types of gifts, such as via your IRA retirement fund.
In last year’s campaign, Monterey County Gives! raised over $9.6 million in six weeks, thanks to more than 7,500 donors. That’s impactful. Since its inception, the program has raised and donated over $45 million to approximately 500 local nonprofits.
MCGives! runs through midnight on Dec. 31.
We invite you to participate and support First Tee – Monterey County through MCGives!
Become a donor, and help spread the word.
Every bit helps. We’re in this together and can collectively create positive change for all who call Monterey County home.
Please, join us to make a difference. Click donate to make a tax-deductible donation.
