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 ideas?

  • Donate: One of the main ways to participate in Giving Tuesday is to donate to a charity or nonprofit of your choice on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. If you care about several charities, choose your top favorite and donate to all of them! 
  • Rewatch our livestream: On Dec. 1, 2020, MatPat and Stephanie of The Game Theorists hosted a 9-hour YouTube livestream to support St. JudeWatch their livestream here.
  • Fundraise: When you ask friends and family to help you raise money for a charity, you increase the amount that you would have normally given just on your own! There are many ways you can fundraise for St. Jude.
  • Volunteer: Another way to participate is to volunteer your time with a charity. Volunteers are extremely valuable for helping complete necessary work. Some nonprofits offer virtual volunteer opportunities, too. 
  • Encourage others: After you give, fundraise or volunteer, encourage others to get involved by sharing about your participation using the popular hashtag #GivingTuesday.

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."
