What is "Giving Tuesday"?
- Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.
Why should you donate on Giving Tuesday?
- In support of Giving Tuesday, also referred to as #GivingTuesday, on November 28, 2017, Facebook will partner with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to match up to $2 million in donations that are made on Facebook to eligible U.S.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofits. (That's us!)
If you donate to us via our Facebook fundraiser on Tuesday the 28th, your donation will be matched.
Don't have Facebook?
- That's okay, you can still donate directly on our website. Your donation won't be matched, but we appreciate every donation, no matter the amount! Click here for our donation page.
