Joyful Connections awarded $5,000 unrestricted grant

        Greater Toledo Community Foundation, in partnership with The Blade and The Center for Nonprofit Resources, introduced #GivingTuesdayNWO in 2013 to encourage nonprofits to begin online giving programs and encourage donors to make local giving a priority.
        “GivingTuesday” is a global day of giving, and occurs on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving each year.
        Results obtained through an online survey (65 of 99 organizations self-reported) prove that local nonprofits raised $323,437.96 on Dec. 1, 2020. In addition, Greater Toledo Community Foundation provided $10,000 to fund two unrestricted grants for local nonprofit organizations participating in GivingTuesdayNWO. The combined efforts of the Foundation and local nonprofits resulted in more than $333,000 being distributed to worthy causes in Northwest Ohio.
        Two nonprofit agencies were randomly drawn from the list of those nonprofit organizations that participated in #GivingTuesdayNWO 2020 and reported their results. One winner was chosen to receive an award of $5,000 from each of two categories Small Organization and Large Organization.
        Joyful Connections, an Oak Harbor-based agency that provides supervised child visitations and exchanges received the award in the Small Organization category.
        Autism Model School, Toledo, received the award in the Large Organization category.
