Founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation, Giving Tuesday is a day to reflect and give back to the community during the hectic holiday season. While Giving Tuesday is a day for everyone to celebrate generosity and give back, businesses—big and small—have an opportunity to show customers their continued engagement and commitment to the communities they operate in, while boosting morale for employees during what is often the busiest time of the year.
Whether your business is large or small, whether you give to nonprofits year-round or have never donated before, Giving Tuesday is your opportunity to play a part in a global day celebrating generosity and help to create a lasting impact in your community.
For some businesses, Giving Tuesday is just a small piece of their year-round philanthropic efforts. For others, it’s the cornerstone. But for every type of business, of every size, there’s an opportunity to participate on December 1, 2015.
For more information about how your business can use Giving Tuesday to support the non-profits of your choice, ImpactFlow, an online fundraising platform for non-profits, businesses and individuals, has created an excellent resource called the Business Guide to Sharing Tuesday.
