#GivingTuesday is NOW!

Thank you so very much for your generous contribution this year. 2020 has not been the “normal” year we thought it would be. With troubling and unknowing times, Ridgecrest Foundation is pushing through and with your previous contribution, you have made a difference in the daily lives of the residents at Ridgecrest Village.

With COVID-19 still being a part of our lives, we have had to cancel a few of our in-person fundraisers. But we are answering that call with our 2nd Annual #GivingTuesday. #GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. People can show their generosity in a variety of ways during #GivingTuesday – whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes, everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts.

If you feel so inclined to give, please mail a check to Ridgecrest Foundation before December 1, 2020, and in the memo put #GivingTuesday. Or you can visit our website and in the top right corner there is a donate button that will take you to our secure PayPal portal. Lastly, follow us on Facebook to see how your donations will benefit those at Ridgecrest Village.

If you are interested in doing more, we are currently looking for a matching funds partner. This person or company would match the donations being brought in by #GivingTuesday up to any amount desired.

All the proceeds from #GivingTuesday will go to our Enriching Lives Opportunity. Once we raise the proceeds for our first item, we will then choose another one. These opportunities allow us to provide to causes that directly enrich the lives of our Ridgecrest community. Right now, our current opportunity is a wheelchair bike for our residents to enjoy.  This opportunity has been requested by a resident or staff member as something they feel would benefit our Village as a whole.

Thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity and support!
