30-Hours of Giving, December 3rd at 8am – December 4th at 2pm
#GivingTuesday is a nationwide movement to raise awareness of community philanthropy and encourage spending with a purpose. Similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are synonymous with holiday shopping, the goal of #GivingTuesday is to designate a day dedicated to giving back, where people will take collaborative action to improve their local communities, support their favorite charities and causes, and help create a better world.
In Fairfield County, we celebrate #GivingTuesday with the 30-Hour Give through the Fairfield County Foundation. This year the Fairfield County Foundation is ready to help local community members increase their impact by awarding $30,000 in gifts, matching donations made over 30 hours, starting December 3 at 8am and running through December 4 at 2pm.
For the last six years, the Fairfield County Foundation has participated in #GivingTuesday, inspiring our local community members to work together to improve the community and Continue reading

With long time Fair Manager Dave Benson having announced his retirement, the Agricultural Society’s Board of Directors has been on a search for a new manager in recent months.
Now, the search is over and the Directors will announce Continue reading
