The Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa will again participate in the second annual #GivingTuesday campaign, a day set aside to focus on giving back to those in need after the Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday shopping blitz.

#GivingTuesday will take place Tuesday, Dec. 3.

The Community Foundation is hosting a photo/video submission contest on its Facebook page.

Three winners will be selected to award a $500 grant to the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization of their choice in the Community Foundation's 24 county and community service area. Participants must take a photo or short video of their giving in some form and post their submission to the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa's Facebook page at between midnight and 11:59 p.m. (CST) Tuesday, Dec. 3.

Community Foundation staff will select winners who will be notified Wednesday, Dec. 4.

"We want to multiply the joy of giving by offering the $500 incentive that will be given to their favorite nonprofit," said Kaye Englin, president and CEO of the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa.

"The Community Foundation wants to uplift this movement and make people aware of the importance of giving back, whether that means they make a financial contribution to a charity, volunteer their time or just do a good deed."
