This year, The Day joined thousands of organizations across the globe participating in the largest giving day of the year, Giving Tuesday.
We initiated the campaign in an effort to raise funds to help us launch our Housing Solutions Lab. We set a goal to raise $5,000 in just 24 hours, and with the support of our generous readers we surpassed that goal.
In 2022 we will expand the way we serve our communities. Your donation will help us launch an investigative project examining the issues that affect the economic future of our local communities. Starting with The Housing Solutions Lab, we will report on the issue of housing - affordable housing, segregation, housing insecurity, homelessness and more – from the perspective of those most disproportionately affected and with a focus on solutions.
This end-of-year fundraising will continue into 2022 as we look for community, grant and philanthropic support to fund additional staffing and resources necessary to conduct an in-depth investigation into the region’s housing crisis
From all of us at The Day, thank you for your support on #GivingTuesday and every day you help us to serve southeastern Connecticut.
