As part of the amazing global response to Covid-19, organisers from Giving Tuesday have asked for a special global day of giving and unity.
That day, #GivingTuesdayNow, will take place on 5 May 2020 – and as a long-time official partner to Giving Tuesday, we’re on board to help make it a success!
What is Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement that aims to unleash the power of people and organisations to transform the world. And that’s precisely why we love them! The #GivingTuesday movement encourages anyone and everyone to donate time, money or their voice to help a good cause. GivenGain has worked with Giving Tuesday since 2017 to help charities and fundraisers to make a bigger impact through online fundraising.
Traditionally, #GivingTuesday is a day of fundraising that takes place annually on the Tuesday following the Black Friday and Cyber Monday spend fests. This year it falls on 1 December 2020. However, due to the unprecedented need caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, charities need our support right now. That’s why Giving Tuesday organisers have announced an extra day of global giving to help charities continue their work.
