What is Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a national day of giving. It follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday as a way to remind us all to support causes that make the world a better place.
Is this really a thing?
Over 10,000 for-profit and nonprofit organizations from all 50 states and 11 countries have partnered with #GivingTuesday. Since it was founded in 2012, Giving Tuesday has helped facilitate $300 million in online giving and inspired additional donations of materials and volunteerism..
What can I do?
- Make a donation to The Foundation.
The Wisconsin Credit Union Foundation's mission is to support the credit union movement through credit union and professional development, financial literacy and support in times of crisis. Even small amounts such as $5, 10 or $20 make a difference.
- Encourage others to donate.
Hold a casual day at your credit union, do a bake sale or simply share this message with your coworkers and encourage them to make a donation.
- Honor someone else with a donation in their name.
Memorials and tributes are a great way to mark an occasion, remember someone or say thank you.
Lastly, thank you for all the support you've already shown to The Foundation!
