We have two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On Giving Tuesday, we have a day for giving back.

Giving Tuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. This year, Giving Tuesday falls on November 28.

Giving Tuesday is the opening day of the giving season: a reminder of the “reason for the season."

This Giving Tuesday, Poudre Landmarks Foundation asks you: why does local history matter to you?

Maybe it's because you remember touring the Avery House as a child, or maybe your grandchildren told you all about seeing Edgar Avery's toys from 1890 on their field trip. 

Maybe you stopped by the 1883 Water Works on a bike ride near Lory State Park during an open house, and you enjoyed learning about local history. 

If local history matters to you, consider participating in Giving Tuesday this year to help us continue our mission to preserve, restore, protect, and interpret the history of Fort Collins. 


About Giving Tuesday
