November 30th is GivingTuesday, a globally recognized day of generosity that directly benefits your community. This one special day is an opportunity for people to come together to help, give, show kindness, and share what they have with those in need. This year, we’re asking you to amplify our efforts to end hunger in our community by hosting an online fundraiser on our behalf. The more of us that come together for the cause, the more families we can help.
Plus, every donation on GivingTuesday, November 30th will be matched by the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, up to $50,000.
Your generosity will have twice the impact!

“Isn’t this what we’re supposed to do as human beings? Giving back is so simple. It really is so simple—and it does so much. The number of people we serve is outstanding—families with small children, elderly, veterans, average people doing their best to get by. Seeing people coming through these lines needing such a basic necessity... it’s eye opening and very humbling. People shouldn’t ever go hungry. So I’m here. Doing what I can to help.”
