There is Black Friday, Cyber Monday and #Giving Tuesday!

#GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

#GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of radical generosity around the world.

#GivingTuesday is on November 30, 2021

#Giving Tuesday does not collect fees to participate in the annual event. All fundraising activities and the funds raised on #GivingTuesday are directed by each participating nonprofit organization and processed by the giving platform of their choice. All money raised on #GivingTuesday goes immediately to the nonprofit or community organization that solicited the funds.

#GivingTuesday does not require registration. All organizations, 501c3 or otherwise, are welcome and encouraged to participate in #GivingTuesday.

How can you participate in #GivingTuesday?

There are hundreds of ways to participate in GivingTuesday. Whether you give your voice, goods, your time, or your money, being generous is a way to fight for the causes you care about and help people in need.

Here are some ideas you might consider:

  • Share kindness with your neighbors.
  • Volunteer virtually or share your talents
  • Give your voice to a cause that matters to you
  • Show gratitude to healthcare workers, service providers, and other essential workers who are making sure we still have the services we rely on, even at risk to their own health.
  • Discover a local fundraiser, community drive or coordinated event to join others in your area or with your same interests in giving back — they need your help. Search for opportunities here
  • Give to your favorite cause or a fundraiser to help those in need. (C.A.R.E. Africa!! See our #GivingTuesday blog to give at C.A.R.E. Africa School Project. )
  • Talk about giving and generosity using the hashtag #GivingTuesday
