#GivingTuesday - December 3, 2019

Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday.

The UC Cooperative Extension Central Sierra has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals to celebrate generosity worldwide.  #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  Please kick off the holiday season with us! 

What does this mean for California?

The strength of Cooperative Extension lies in your partnership with the network of trusted UC researchers; educators; and the Master Gardeners, Master Food Preservers and 4-H volunteers who live and work in this community. Your gift to support UC Cooperative Extension today will ensure the health of this partnership for the future.

We are proud of the relationships that create innovations and strengthen our network, and you should be too! Every day you will find our:

  • Agricultural advisors and specialists working hand in hand with growers and producers to solve pest problems, reduce chemical use, use water efficiently, and increase productivity
  • Natural resources advisors working with landowners, city and county planners, and local agencies to protect our natural resources
  • Nutrition educators working with low-income families and consumers to create healthier eating habits in children and adults
  • Master Gardener and Master Food Preserver volunteers teaching cutting-edge home gardening techniques and research-based home food preservation and food safety
  • 4-H youth uniquely prepared to meet the agricultural, social and environmental challenges of a rapidly changing world through science, engineering, technology and active citizenship.

Your donations stay local! Every dollar you give will be used to directly support local cooperative extension programs, directly impacting the lives of local residents.  Your gift will broaden Cooperative Extension programs, expand important local research and education, and ensure that UC Cooperative Extension will thrive as the practical, trusted and connected community partner that we have been for over a century.
