#GivingTuesday™ is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations.
We have a day for giving thanks (Thanksgiving). We have two for getting deals (Black Friday and Cyber Monday). Now we have #GivingTuesday, a day for giving back.
On Tuesday December 2, 2014, global charities, families, businesses, community centers, students and more will come together for #GivingTuesday.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Be a part of a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity.
- Consider trying a one day mobile or online giving campaign…
- Ask a board member to put up a matching grant…
- Invite donors, employees and your neighbors to get together to celebrate giving by creating a day of service…
In Central Florida, the Rollins College Philanthropy & Nonprofit Leadership Center has been designated the local partner organization to those at the national level. The Philanthropy Center will serve as the hub for ideas, collaborations, sharing of best practices, and resources.
Register now for a free session that will cover what #GivingTuesday is, and what it isn’t. We’ll share some ideas for local nonprofits and set the stage for potential collaborations among peer groups. We’ll also have examples and case studies of what has worked for organizations so you can use those as a launching point for your own #GivingTuesday campaign.
