What is Giving Tuesday

  • GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of people and organisations to transform their communities and their world.

  • 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.

Who can participate

  • Everyone! GivingTuesday has been built by a broad coalition of partners, including individuals, families, not-for-profits, schools, religious organisations, small businesses and corporations. There are people and organisations participating in GivingTuesday in every country in the world.

  • Participating in GivingTuesday is about joining a movement for generosity, and there are so many ways to do that. Whether you give your voice, goods, your time, or your money, being generous is a way to fight for the causes you care about and help people in need.
