Established in 2012, and celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving since, Giving Tuesday focuses on the importance of ‘giving back’ to our communities by helping its neediest members.
As you know, ICS has been serving thousands of upper Manhattan’s neediest residents since its inception in 1979.
Consequently, might you consider donating to ICS as your way of participating in Giving Tuesday? You can do so in three different ways:
- ICS Turkey Drive: $15 donation buys a needy family a turkey and all the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal that they would otherwise not have
- ICS Holiday Toy Drive: $25 donation buys a toy for a young girls or boy in one of our clinic or prevention programs. Frequently, this is the only gift this child receives — so you will be instilling a sense of joy and hope into what can be a season of sadness and deprivation for too many children
- ICS General Operating Fund: A donation of any amount will be used by ICS to enhance its current array of programs and activities. It is ICS’s policy not to use such donations to support administrative overhead, but rather to apply them completely to programmatic expenses.
Reminder: ICS is an IRS 501 (c)(3) , tax exempt corporation. As such, all donations are 100% tax deductible.
