What is GivingTuesdayCA?
Taking place on November 29th, following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, GivingTuesdayCA is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
GivingTuesdayCA kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. It has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy throughout the year by connecting diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.
How did GivingTuesdayCA start?
GivingTuesday was started in Canada by a group of organizations including CanadaHelps, and now includes over 4,700 partners. GivingTuesday was originally started in the US in 2012 by the UN Foundation, the NYC 92Y and several other community organizations.
