A Global Day of Unity : #givingtuesday 5 May 2020

Giving Tuesday 5 May 2020

#GivingTuesdayNow Brings Together Individuals, Nonprofits, Communities, Small Businesses, Brands and more; Provides Unifying Moment for Giving Back on May 5, 2020

#GivingTuesdayNow is a worldwide day of giving organized in response to the need arising from the COVID-19 crisis. The event is designed to drive an influx of generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.

The global day of action will rally people around the world to tap into the power of human connection and strengthen communities at the grassroots level. Communities are encouraged to take action on behalf of first responders, as well as the world’s other – often forgotten – frontline workers: the nonprofits and community organizations that feed, house, educate, and nurture neighbors impacted by the global pandemic. The social sector is in crisis at the very moment the world needs it most, and GivingTuesday stands ready to rally the world at this critical time.

“For eight years, GivingTuesday has celebrated grassroots generosity, and has built a movement that empowers millions of people to give, engage their communities, and find common ground,” said Rob Reich, Faculty Co-Director, Stanford University Center for Philanthropy and Civil Society and chairman of the board for GivingTuesday. “We are all confronting the same challenge right now, we need the giving spirit more than ever.”

Dozens of countries will mobilize national networks to activate locally and promote generosity in their country.
