Why Giving First?

Traditionally, one of the most popular days of charitable giving, Giving Tuesday, falls after consumer-focused Black Friday and Cyber-Monday.

Giving First is a collaboration of more than 45+ non-profit organizations, each determined to address the difficult and complex issues in our community. Read more about the movement and see the full list of participating organizations here

On Tuesday, November 22, 2022, you can support the Urban Ecology Center BEFORE the hustle and bustle of the traditional shopping weekend. 

With your support, we can help more people in cities connect to nature and each other by #GivingFirst!

We cannot just teach children the importance of nature; 
they have to interact with nature themselves in order to love and protect it.

A gift of $42 will give a child in our community an unforgettable outdoor field trip experience!
