This year’s GivingTuesday will take place on November 28, 2023, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. The movement has grown globally since its inception in 2012, earning approximately $10 million that year. In 2022, 37 million people in six continents worldwide helped raise $3.1 billion. Giving Tuesday also has an initiative called GivingLab that gathers data and insights from academic sources, data platform providers, and others. Additionally, there is an affiliate fellowship program that encourages innovation through experimentation and idea-sharing. You can learn more by visiting:  

In 2012, I participated in the first GivingTuesday, as I knew this day would help my former non-profit’s charitable efforts while supporting its cause. In my former organization’s industry, Black Friday and Cyber Monday were traditionally some of the most impactful revenue-generating days. With just the basics, I put together a couple of emails, a few Facebook posts, and hoped for the best. Generous donations started to arrive almost immediately, and I then realized GivingTuesday’s true altruistic potential. 

I attended the GivingTuesday Symposium at the 92nd Street Y, New York in 2016, where I was able to meet the founders of the movement and enjoy time with fellow fundraisers at the place the movement was born.
