#GivingTuesday graphic

Today we celebrate #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Its meant to kick off the charitable season, when people around the world focus on the holidays and end-of-year giving. SCI encourages everyone to get involved in their community and give back in whatever way they can.

One way to impact your community, and communities throughout the Eastern Massachusetts region, is to donate to Social Capital Inc. (SCI). With your support, we are able to impact communities through various initiatives, from promoting understanding and cultural awareness, to youth leadership and healthy-eating programs. Click here to donate to SCI. We appreciate any and all support!
