What is Giving Tuesday and when is it?

The next Giving Tuesday is on Nov. 30, 2021. Giving Tuesday is a national campaign occurring on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It was established as a way to begin the giving season and encourage people to contribute charitable donations to nonprofits.


What are some Giving Tuesday participation ideas?

  • Donate: Donate to a charity or nonprofit of your choice on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. If you care about several charities, choose your favorite and donate to all of them! Donate to St. Jude.
  • Watch our livestream with the Game Theorists: Join us Nov. 30, 2021 for an all-day game streaming event. YouTube star MatPat will be joined by a number of gaming friends. Watch the livestream here
  • Encourage others: After you give, fundraise or volunteer, encourage others to get involved by sharing your participation using the popular hashtag #GivingTuesday.
  • Fundraise: When you ask friends and family to help raise money for a charity, you increase the amount you would've given on your own! There are many ways you can fundraise for St. Jude.
  • Volunteer: Volunteer your time with a charity. Volunteers are extremely valuable for helping to complete work. Some nonprofits offer virtual volunteer opportunities, too. See volunteering opportunities with St. Jude.

What is a good Giving Tuesday quote?

There are many good quotes to reference in celebration of Giving Tuesday. We have a favorite one by our founder:

I'd rather have a million people give me a dollar than one give me a million. That way you've got a million people involved.

Danny Thomas, St. Jude founder
