GivingTuesday campaign sign up date Friday

IRON MOUNTAIN — Grow & Lead: Community and Youth Development has convened local nonprofits that participate in #GivingTuesday to develop an Upper Peninsula campaign – #give906.

The campaign will focus on giving locally to U.P. based nonprofit on #GivingTuesday on Nov. 27.

U.P. based nonprofit organizations have until Friday to register their projects on

Grow & Lead is putting together a tool kit of #give906 resources that will be available on Monday.

“We had received feedback from a number of nonprofits that there is a lot of national exposure for #GivingTuesday, but there wasn’t as much awareness on how to give locally,” said Amy Quinn, CEO of Grow & Lead.

“As a capacity building center that serves the entire Upper Peninsula, creating a U.P. based portal for #GivingTuesday projects was a perfect fit with our mission.”

Donors and volunteers are encouraged to use #give906 on Tuesday, Nov. 27 to share how they gave locally.
