We are really excited that the Chartered Institute continues to lead Giving Tuesday in the UK.

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.

Over £20m raised on GivingTuesday 2022

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.

GivingTuesday is a unique day where all and anyone can celebrate and inspire generosity. I’m really pleased to see that last year over £20m was raised for good causes all across the UK, along with he opportunity of raising their profile and thanking their supporters. Along with the brilliant fundraising that happens all through the year, it is important that there are days like GivingTuesday which provide a platform for all organisations, sectors, and people to get behind.
