Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving. A day where everyone, everywhere can do something to support the good causes and communities that mean so much to them. It is a day to celebrate and encourage giving in all its forms.
You can volunteer your time; donate money; share your skills; campaign for something; donate goods, food, or clothes; arrange a community event such as a street or park clean-up or a coffee morning, organise a fundraising event, or inspire and encourage your network to do something to support a good cause. The list really is endless.
Giving Tuesday is unique in that is it owned by each of the partners involved. An unbranded campaign where our partners are encouraged to personalise the activities, branding and logos to make Giving Tuesday the best it can be for them.
This year #GivingTuesday will take place on 28 November. Visit the website to find out more.
The Chartered Institute of Fundraising is delighted to share that it’s estimated over £20m was raised on GivingTuesday 2022 within the UK.
On GivingTuesday, charities all across the UK used the day as an opportunity to fundraise, to say thank you to supporters, and raise awareness of their cause. 29 November also saw GivingTuesday partners, the Big Give, launch their Christmas Challenge – the UK’s biggest match funding campaign – which raised £7.4m. JustGiving, GivingTuesday’s giving partner for 2022, saw £2.4m raised on the day.
When asked about there being a recognised day when charities, businesses, and others come together to encourage people to give donations and inspire charitable actions, a third (35%) said such a recognised day would make them more likely to donate. The support is particularly strong among younger people – almost three quarters (73%) of those aged 18-34 said such a day was important, and more than six in ten (61%) said that it would mean they would be likely to donate more.
