What is Giving Tuesday? This global day of giving takes place on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It was started in 2012 by two nonprofit organizations, the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation. These two nonprofits were inspired to channel holiday goodwill into a spirit of giving. In 2012, 2,500 organizations participated in the first Giving Tuesday, raising more than $10 million. The growth in this day’s impact has been explosive. In 2016, Giving Tuesday raised $177 million online. Why should you support Giving Tuesday? The holiday season is a great time to connect with friends and family. While gifts and parties are a wonderful way to celebrate, this season is also the perfect time to give back to our communities and nonprofits. This giving day takes place throughout the world, so you can donate to local, national, or even global nonprofits and support the causes you believe in. Please support Forté this Giving Tuesday.
