Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday looks a little different this year and Tryon Palace is on board for this unique approach to the day people observe for giving to causes near and dear to their hearts. Tryon Palace is participating in the global Giving Tuesday initiative and local Giving Tuesday events.

All Giving Tuesday efforts will be available online and on social media platforms at , and Patrons’ support will go towards Tryon Palace’s continued efforts in preserving historic collection pieces, supporting their mission to connect all generations to North Carolina History.

Tryon Palace Development Manager Susan Ramsey said: “I hope that others will please join us  to preserve and hold safe our history! Tryon Palace Foundation and so many others hold this place close, as it represents our nation forming, changing, and constantly growing. I want to thank, in advance, all of you who recognize and embrace Tryon Palace as a State and New Bern treasure. It is greatly appreciated for generations before, present and those to come!”

Tryon Palace will join the New Bern Chamber of Commerce, and other local organizations, in their “Carry it Forward: A FUNdraiser for Nonprofits.” This event will reach the local community and is held on December 1, 2020 in Union Park from 11 AM – 1 PM. It features a donation drive-thru, live holiday concert and food truck. This gives the community an opportunity to see their favorite organizations, and kick off the holiday season with festivities. Attendees are encouraged to bring a lawn chair, and maintain a safe distance from others to adhere to healthy COVID19 guidelines.
