Together we can make
Giving Tuesday incredible.
Our recent webinar had experts from GivingTuesday.org, Qgiv and CyberGrants offer their unique perspectives on an unprecedented giving season and learn how to drive impact through unified giving efforts.
Now more than ever we are called to make a difference.
What is Giving Tuesday? GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give.

Held on May 5th, 2020, GivingTuesdayNow was a global day of giving and unity as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. In what typically takes a year to organize and plan GivingTuesday, GivingTuesdayNow was pulled together in 5 weeks, with its decision to launch made only 3 days prior to this announcement. In this talk, GivingTuesday’s Chief Data Officer Woodrow Rosenbaum and Karen McCloskey, Director of Internal Communications at NetScout will discuss the results, best practices, and lessons learned from GivingTuesdayNow.

How you can make an impact this #givingtuesday:
GivingTuesday is about giving of all types — some may choose to give a financial contribution to their favorite cause or a fundraising drive, others will opt to reach out to neighbors, start an advocacy campaign, donate goods or extra supplies, or just share gratitude. If you can show generosity and share kindness, you have something to give!
Here are 5 quick and easy ways to engage your employees and peers while doing an incredible amount of social good:
- Save the date with a Giving Tuesday Calendar invite
This is a simple way to remind and invite all your employees to engage in Giving Tuesday. Include in the invite any import information pertaining to all your giving Tuesday campaigns and links to where employees should go to make a contribution
- Help spread the word by connecting with others on social media!
● Talk about giving and generosity using the hashtag GivingTuesday
● Share Facebook posts — facebook.com/GivingTuesday
● Follow @GivingTuesday @CyberGrants on Twitter and use the GivingTuesday hashtag
- Create a Meaningful Hashtag
Using a company specific hashtag can help encourage employees and get them involved! It’s easy to set up a feed and get the participation flowing. Along with your company hashtag, post using the Giving Tuesday #UNselfie template for employees to share how they are giving this year. This is particularly useful if your company has more than one location or you have remote workers.
- Make giving fun with gamification!
Create some viral competition for Giving Tuesday through your workplace giving program, with an incentive to earn the title of most generous state, team, or department. For example, encouraged employees to donate to nonprofits of their choice by using the firm’s workplace giving program competition with a $2 for $1 matching gift promotion.
- Double Down On a Cause That Matters to Your Company
This is probably the most important element of creating an incredible #GivingTuesday – finding a cause that speaks to your employees, your company, and your clients. What do they hold dear? What would your target base be most interested in? Find opportunities and encourage them to volunteer.
