Giving Tuesday is a global day of charitable giving that takes place on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. This day of giving was founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation as a day that encourages people to do good.
The goal of Giving Tuesday is to promote and celebrate philanthropy, volunteerism, and the spirit of giving. Schools may plan specific fundraising campaigns on Giving Tuesday or engage the school community in acts of kindness, such as volunteering, donating food or clothing, or supporting various local and global causes.
Giving Tuesday serves as a reminder of the importance of generosity and the positive impact that individuals can have on their communities and the world. Harnessing the power of social media and digital networks, schools can mobilize their communities to give back and make a difference.
