“The end of the year is a powerful time for nonprofits, a time of tremendous energy and momentum. Nonprofit professionals understand and appreciate the potential for their organizations in year-end giving,” says Jeffrey Byrne, President + Founder of Jeffrey Byrne + Associates, Inc. “#GivingTuesday harnesses the power of this time of year, by inspiring people to take collaborative action and give back. #GivingTuesday also reminds us of the true spirit of the holiday season: community. One of the most powerful gifts we can give our loved ones is our promise to work together to help create a better world…for everyone.”
#GivingTuesday is a call to action.
Currently, more than 4,000 partners have committed to participate in #GivingTuesday. With three weeks left until December 3, new organizations are joining daily and providing creative ways people can embrace #GivingTuesday and collaborate in their giving efforts to create more meaningful results.
Whether you are part of a nonprofit organization that is coordinating a fundraising initiative or volunteer project, a donor looking to make a contribution, a volunteer hoping to donate time and talent or a business wishing to increase its engagement with the community – #GivingTuesday is the perfect opportunity to do so.
