“We have one day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 29th, 2016, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.”
Starting in 2012, as a movement to create an international day of giving. Giving Tuesday has grown from $10 million in donations, to $117 million in 2015. This Tuesday, 11/29 is gearing up to be the largest single day for nonprofit donations in history. Below are some statistics and social media tips that can help your nonprofit strategize for this important day.
After Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday comes #GivingTuesday, an opportunity to give a little back to the community during a time when we're all buying so much! 501cTECH has joined this great new tradition, and hope you'll do the same so that we can work together in transforming the way people think about the giving season.
