On Thursday, November 12, the Monterey County Gives! campaign officially begins.  The campaign runs from November 12 to December 31, 2020.  All donations must be sent directly to the Community Foundation for Monterey County to be included.  This campaign serves as one of the major funding sources for The Blind and Visually Impaired Center of Monterey County.


Monterey County Weekly has had a close relationship with the local nonprofit community for more than 25 years, supporting and promoting those who work to improve the quality of life for all.  The Monterey County Weekly witnesses, reports, and collaborates with nonprofits to promote their events and programs, so they may communicate and carry out their mission.


In 2000, the Weekly supported the nonprofit community in another way when it established the Monterey County Weekly Community Fund, a donor advised fund of the Community Foundation for Monterey County.  In 2009, Monterey County Gives! was launched, focused on an annual appeal to the Weekly’s generous readers for year-end donations.  In that first year, $417,000 was raised and granted.  The Weekly has built on that success each year, and with the Monterey Peninsula Foundation joining as a partner in 2015, the campaign has shown the power of philanthropy in Monterey County.


Starting November 12, please visit to make your donation online.  You can also mail a check directly to:
