Tell me more about GivingTuesday
After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, imagine a day dedicated to giving back, around the world, across Canada and in our community. Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season, GivingTuesday (November 28, 2017), marks the opening day of the giving season.
In Canada, GivingTuesday is an initiative of CanadaHelps and The GIV3 Foundation, and a total of 15 founding partners. They have been joined by thousands of Canadian charities, businesses and communities in a collective call to all Canadians to support charities of their choice. GivingTuesday was started in 2012 in the USA by the UN Foundation and the 92nd Street Y. The movement now includes 98 countries.
The fourth annual GivingTuesday in Canada exceeded all expectations. Over 5,700 partners came together and millions of Canadians joined in, creating national awareness, recognition and a massive impact on donations (+ 353% at CanadaHelps since 2012) and other forms of giving.
