GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. It is built by hundreds of millions of people from all walks of life and countless organizations in every country of the world.
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.
We believe that generosity leads to greater civic participation and other prosocial behaviors.
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. When so much attention is given to what makes us different, generosity is what brings people of all races, faiths, and political views together. Generosity is our individual power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value we can all act on. Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give. Everyone has something to give. It’s about the collective spirit of generosity that brings change to our communities when people give their voice, their time, their talent, or their money.
With activity happening in every country on earth, GivingTuesday is the biggest generosity movement of all time. There are over 200 local GivingTuesday movements happening in the United States and 60 country campaigns. In just seven years, the GivingTuesday movement has raised more than $1 billion online in the U.S. alone. GivingTuesday is held annually the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and this year on December 3, 2019. It is held on the same day in most participating countries in the world.
