Giving Tuesday 2021

Have you heard of GivingTuesday? GivingTuesday is a global day of generosity that will take place on November 30, 2021.

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

Recent data shows that people are highly motivated to give in 2021, and are giving more in response to needs in their community and for causes they care about. People can show their generosity in a variety of ways during GivingTuesday⁠⁠—whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes—everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts.
