SC Give is the Stanwood Camano community's local Giving Tuesday event. It is a 24-hour online giving event hosted by the Stanwood-Camano Area Foundation to celebrate and support giving and local philanthropy. Starting at 12:00 a.m. on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Stanwood and Camano Island residents unite for 24 straight hours to give to a variety of projects that provide basic needs and enhance the quality of life in our community.
SC Give helps the community in two important ways.
- It engages the community by raising its awareness of community needs and brings people together to fulfill those needs in a fun and exciting way.
- It provides funding for a wide variety of projects that directly benefit the community by providing basic needs and enhancing the quality of life.
A small pilot program of this event was conducted on December 1, 2015, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. The pilot program raised $30,000 in a 24-hour period for 13 projects directly benefiting the community. The following year (2016) a full roll-out of the event resulted in more than $61,000 donated by community members to benefit 21 projects serving the needs of the community.
Projects in need of funding are listed on the Event website at the beginning of November, although donations are not accepted through the site until 12:00 a.m. on Giving Tuesday.
