In a time of global emergency and disconnection, we need new ways to connect us. As the world’s most massive giving movement, GivingTuesday believes we can go further, even quicker than imagined.
The NBC News quotes in “Giving Tuesday 2020: What it is and how to get involved,” “‘All of that money [being spent after Thanksgiving] is coming from the same wallet,'” said Asha Curran, the CEO of Giving Tuesday, in an interview with the American Bar Association. ‘We wanted to appropriate a little bit of that money for the nonprofit world.'”
GivingTuesday strives to build communities where the abundance of generosity is at the heart of society, unbarring dignity, possibilities, and worldwide equity. We believe that generosity leads to more vital civic support and an array of pro-social behaviors.
The mission of GivingTuesday is to build a more just and generous world.
