When is GivingTuesday this year?

This year, GivingTuesday is November 29, 2022.

How does GivingTuesday work?

You’ve heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. GivingTuesday is a day dedicated to radical generosity that is held every year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the U.S—AKA the Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

On GivingTuesday, everyone is encouraged to do something good for someone else (without expecting anything in return). This makes it a great opportunity to boost your nonprofit’s outreach, recruit volunteers, sign-up new donors, and raise funds for your cause. And it works. During GivingTuesday 2021, nonprofit organizations raised over $2.7 billion in the U.S. alone! (It’s almost as if we were all feeling super guilty about spending so much on ourselves during Black Friday and Cyber Monday…)

Are there any GivingTuesday hashtags nonprofits should use and follow?

The official hashtag for the event is #GivingTuesday–and it gets billions of impressions on social media each year!

Other hashtags your nonprofit can follow:
