Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Giving Tuesday is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many individuals focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. It is also the time of year when most nonprofit organizations receive the majority of contributions from individual donors.
Last year (2015) on Giving Tuesday, more than 700,000 people in 71 countries donated more than $116 Million to bring about real change in their communities.
Giving Tuesday is an important part of The Wildwoods Foundation’s annual fundraising plan. But more than just raising money, it is a time to for our supporters to help spread the word about the work that we do.
