Throughout the year, we have seen extraordinary grassroots efforts succeed to help frontline workers, reach out to disproportionately affected by the pandemic and economic crisis, coalesce support and activism for racial injustice and systemic inequity, mobilize civic participation and continue to drive giving and action for causes and communities worldwide.

GivingTuesday Quick Facts

GivingTuesday is a growing global generosity movement that drives giving and collective action in communities around the world.

  • GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
  • GivingTuesday inspires generosity worldwide. There are official GivingTuesday national movements in 75 countries, led by a global network of passionate, entrepreneurial leaders. At a grassroots level, people and organizations participate in GivingTuesday in every single country in the world.
  • GivingTuesday creates global impact driven by local action. In the U.S., more than 230 community campaigns will join thousands of nonprofits, foundations, grassroots organizations, small businesses, and generous individuals to give back.
  • GivingTuesday is driving a net increase in giving. The movement continues to grow in year-over-year donation volume, reach and impact – driving increased donations and behavior change. In 2020, at least $2.47 Billion were donated in twenty-four hours in the U.S. alone, with 13% of the adult population participating in some way – a record-setting day. Around the world, the majority of people aware of GivingTuesday say that it has inspired them to be more generous.
  • GivingTuesday inspires collective action and generosity all year round–and in times of crisis. $503M in online donations were contributed in the U.S. alone on May 5, during #GivingTuesdayNow a global day of giving and unity created as an emergency response to COVID-19.
  • People can show their generosity in a variety of ways during GivingTuesday. Whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or finding virtual volunteer opportunities with their favorite causes—everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts.
