Face-to-Face Fundraising for causes that do good work in our communities is rapidly changing. The pandemic continues to linger and people are not yet ready to attend big-group gatherings.
Giving Tuesday has become a world-wide phenomenon since it’s 2012 inception. Amazingly giving was up even during the Year of Covid-19. Even so, it has been sad to see that some non-profits still did not survive. That has made Giving Tuesday even more important in making more people aware of charity. The 24-hour event has also inspired younger people – not always prone to giving.
Income the Benedictine Sisters of Florida traditionally make both within the monastery and through jobs held, has been dramatically reduced since March 2020. A few of the Sisters lost jobs outside the monastery as well.
