Giving Tuesday is a movement to celebrate charitable giving. It is a national day of giving on December 1, 2015. We want to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. Giving Tuesday inspires people to take action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. Black Friday and cyber Monday have become shopping days for the commercial world. Giving Tuesday is a new shopping day, focused on the true spirit of giving - giving to those in need.
You can make a gift to our GivingTuesday campaign online any time. You don't have to wait until December 1.
The Giving Tuesday movement is harnessing the power of social media to promote a true holiday spirit of caring. Give to make the world better and use social media to spread the word.

This year, on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, we are part of a call to action that will change the calendar and help make history. We are celebrating a day dedicated to giving – when charities, families, businesses, community centers, students, retailers and more will all come together for #GivingTuesday – a movement to celebrate giving and kick-off the holiday giving season. Last year, more than 10,000 organizations in 46 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. We invite you to join the movement and to help get out the give this December 2.
