On November 28, 2023, people all around the world are coming together to tap into the power of human connection and strengthen communities and change our world. Will you be one of them?
The National Indian Council on Aging, Inc. (NICOA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1976 focused on the needs of aging American Indian and Alaska Native elders. For nearly 45 years, NICOA has worked to ensure the best for our Native elders, their families, and communities.
NICOA will be participating in GivingTuesday and we need your help! By joining the GivingTuesday movement, you’re proving that in times of uncertainty, generosity can bring us together. Here's how you can give:
- Give. On November 29, go to www.nicoa.org/donate and give. NICOA is listed on Network for Good and GoFundMe. You can also support our organization by sharing your stories with us, or by volunteering to help at our 2023 American Indian Elders Conference.
Did you know that each year, an estimated $4-7 billion in corporate matching gift funds goes unclaimed? Check with your employer to see if they match donations! You can do this quickly by using Double the Donation. You can also choose to donate stock with these easy tips found in this guide from Donate Stock.
- Spread the word. Giving is so much more impactful (and fun) when it’s done in a group! Think about your group chat, your block club, your neighborhood Facebook or Nextdoor group. Encourage your friends and family to join you in creating real impact on November 29 by sharing what our mission means to you and why you support our organization. Make sure to tag us so we can share!
- Share our social media channels in your organizational and personal social network. Use our sample messages and graphics to show your support for NICOA on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Talk about giving and generosity using the hashtag #GivingTuesday.
