What began as a day to encourage people to do good…
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. GivingTuesday is now an independent nonprofit and a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
GivingTuesday reimagines a world built upon shared humanity and generosity.
