Black Friday? Cyber Monday? Don’t Forget Giving Tuesday!
OK, great! But are you ready for Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a campaign that kicked off back in 2012 to create a national day of giving following two of the busiest shopping days of the year. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities to support non-profit organizations.
This year Giving Tuesday will be celebrated on Dec. 1. Celebrate Giving Tuesday this year and help protect the places you love in Hunterdon County!
You can make an online donation, join the Evergreen Partners in our monthly giving program or honor someone special in your life by making a gift to the Hunterdon Land Trust in his or her name. It’s a gift you can feel great about!
And have a happy Giving Tuesday!

• Gifts of Stock
Donating stock or other securities is one of the best ways to support the Hunterdon Land Trust. Making a gift of securities is simple and lets you take advantage of not one but two types of tax savings. With a gift of appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds, the total value of the asset upon transfer is tax deductible, and there is no obligation to pay capital gains taxes on the appreciation.
