Giving Tuesday

About GivingTuesday - December 3, 2019:  a global movement for generosity, taking place each year after Black Friday. It is a free, open and inclusive movement, where charities, companies and communities join together and rally for favourite causes. Last year GivingTuesday was celebrated in 150+ countries around the world, engaging millions of Canadians, raising over $15 million online in Canada (and $400 million online in the USA), and providing a platform for countless donations of time, resources and talent around the world. 

GivingTuesday is looking for community leaders: to start and/or help lead a GivingTuesday movement for your town, city, province or cause area. To help grow the GivingTuesday movement by rallying charities, schools, businesses, government and individuals to participate to benefit the local community.

The role: GivingTuesday community leaders take varying roles, depending on their capacity and number of people on the local team. Some examples of leadership tasks include: engage local charities, businesses and other stakeholders, start/maintain a community page , start/maintain a social media presence for the movement, help to organize local events on the week/day of GivingTuesday etc.

Support for leaders: the GivingTuesday Canada team supports local leaders through our annual leaders’ summit (June), one-on-one coaching/planning meetings, regular conference calls, and emails with resources and educational materials. We may also be able to send a team member to present at your local meet-up (or present by webinar) depending on timing and location. Please find detailed planning tools, tips and checklists in the GivingTuesday Campaign Planner and the GivingTuesday Civic Toolkit.
