Tryon Palace Participates in Local and Global Giving Tuesday Efforts

Giving Tuesday - Tryon Palace

Giving Tuesday looks a little different this year, and Tryon Palace is on board for this unique approach to this special day when we are called to make a gift 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. Please show your support of Tryon Palace’s mission and work on Giving Tuesday.

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 grassroots event reaches the local community and will be held on December 1, 2020 in Union Park from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. 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.

New Bern Give3 Committee Leader Tharesa Lee said: “This is the perfect year to change our approach on Giving Tuesday. COVID-19 has made many of our nonprofits think outside the box on how to serve our community effectively and safely. Now we have the opportunity to serve and celebrate these wonderful nonprofits.”
