What is #GivingTuesday?

GivingTuesday (Dec. 3rd) is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season. #GivingTuesday inspires millions of people to come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.

What is #GivingTuesdayCLT?

Presented by Wells Fargo and powered by SHARE Charlotte, #GivingTuesdayCLT (Dec. 3rd) is Charlotte’s local response to the global movement. It is an unprecedented collaboration of hundreds of Charlotte nonprofits as well as corporations, local businesses, community organizations and individuals coming together through good. #GivingTuesdayCLT, which has influenced more than $24M in gifts to Charlotte nonprofits, is designed to:
● Rally the Charlotte community around the common goal of doing good
● Celebrate and promote acts of giving financial gifts, volunteer time or donating goods
● Educate the public on the critical work Charlotte nonprofits are doing
● Keep Charlotte on the global GivingTuesday map as a caring and philanthropy community
