Our local nonprofits need your support now more than ever. Giving Tuesday shines the spotlight on our local nonprofits. Please consider donating to any of our local nonprofits during this pandemic or to the Disaster Relief Funds set up by both Amador Community Foundation and Calaveras Community Foundation.
