#GivingTuesday is a movement, built by people around the world, to celebrate giving of all kinds. It is celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), Black Friday and Cyber Monday; this year it falls on November 29, 2016. This movement is the result of the collective power of a unique blend of partners—nonprofits large and small; businesses and corporations; schools and universities; civic campaigns in cities, states and regions; and families and individuals—to inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities and contribute in countless ways to the causes they believe in.

The Big Stone Health Care Foundation is dedicated to raising funds to maintain and expand top quality, local health care services for the people of the Ortonville, MN area. Through Physician Recruitment, building projects, equipment purchases and educational funding for EMTs, future nurses and physicians and other health care professionals, we have helped create health care options right here.
#GivingTuesday isn’t just about making a financial contribution, but it also encourages volunteerism. The Foundation relies heavily on volunteers and volunteer committees for our three fundraising events: the Annual Gala Affair, The Oak Tree Classic golf tournament and its High Fashion for the Foundation fashion showcase. We are always looking for volunteers who are willing to bring their creativity, talent, manpower, office skills–or any other skills–to bring these events to life an make them successful.
As a non-profit organization in a smaller community, we are so grateful to have donors and volunteers who believe in our mission and who are willing to make an investment in a healthy future!
