The #GivingTuesday Campaign is a global call for action dedicated to giving back. It marks the beginning of the year-end charitable season and it helps balance out the consumer holidays of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Since it was established in 2012, #GivingTuesday has raised over $177,000,000 and includes organizations in 98 countries, and has encouraged charitable attitudes, partnerships, and initiatives in each region where it has grown.

This 27 November, join the movement and give – whether it’s some of your time, a donation, gift, or simply a thank you.

#GivingTuesday is a great way to come together with your family, your community, your company, or organization – and find a way to give back.

This #GivingTuesday, CAF Canada celebrates the work of our donors and the charitable projects they support.
