#GivingTuesdayNow is a global campaign that will take place on the 5 May, 2020 as an emergency response to these unprecedented times caused by COVID-19.
The campaign, led by GivingTuesday, is designed to bring together individuals, organisations and businesses and drive generosity, community engagement and support for charities across the world.
“As a global community, we can mourn this moment of extreme crisis while also finding the opportunity to support one another. We each have the power to make an impact with acts of generosity, no matter how small, and to ensure the sustainability of organizations and services that are crucial to the care and support of our communities,” – Asha Curran, CEO of GivingTuesday.
How can I get involved?
You can show your generosity in a variety of ways during #GivingTuesdayNow – whether it’s helping a neighbour, sharing a skill, saying thank you to emergency services or donating to a local charity or community group. Remember: every act of generosity counts!
The day will emphasise opportunities to give back to your communities and charities, but still complying with government and public health guidelines.
How will #GivingTuesdayNow benefit my charity?
This campaign is the perfect opportunity for charities like you to:
- Engage with current or new funders
- Launch or shine a spotlight on your fundraising campaign (we’d love to hear about it!)
- Raise awareness of your services to a new, wider audience
- Celebrate your fantastic staff and volunteers
- Share stories demonstrating your impact
#GivingTuesdayNow saw 1.5 million people say that they would be more likely to do something for charity as a result of the campaign. So make sure you use the hashtag on social media and share your stories!
