What Is #GivingTuesday?
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (Nov. 29th this year) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many individuals 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.
Created by the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at the 92nd Street Y, #GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities, and organizations for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. A team of influencers and founding partners joined forces, collaborating across sectors, offering expertise and working tirelessly, to launch #GivingTuesday and have continued to shape, grow and strengthen the movement.
As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
