Make a Difference Day


Since 1992, Make A Difference Day has inspired hundreds of thousands of volunteers to give back in their local communities. For more than two decades, Points of Light has proudly partnered with TEGNA to mobilize volunteers on this national day of service and celebrate the power of people to make a difference.

We would like to share the following note from TEGNA, to the Make A Difference Day Community:

As we look to the future and how best to serve the communities where TEGNA operates local television stations, we will no longer support Make A Difference Day. Instead, we will pursue our purpose of serving the greater good of our communities through our TEGNA Foundation Community Grant program, which provides funding throughout the year for nonprofits identified by our local stations. Learn more about TEGNA Community Grants.

If you are looking for ways to continue to organize community volunteer projects, please go to All For Good where you can discover new ways to make a difference.

We are proud of all that we’ve accomplished together through Make A Difference Day and want to thank you and our partners – the Arby’s Foundation and Points of Light – for your support.

Thanks for making a difference with us.
