What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is not only a day – it is a global movement. Transcending race, ethnicity, gender, religion, and politics, #GivingTuesday is a day where we all give back to our communities and causes we believe in.

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. GivingTuesday strives to build a world in which the catalytic power of generosity is at the heart of the society we build together, unlocking dignity, opportunity, and equity around the globe. GivingTuesday’s global network collaborates year-round to inspire generosity around the world, with a common mission to build a world where generosity is part of everyday life.
