“It is remarkable how a simple premise has grown to become the world’s largest movement for giving,” says Alexander. With the spirit of giving at its core, GivingTuesday has been able to openly bring together amazing people from across the world for a unified impact. I am excited to be part of the GivingTuesday board, and more excited to see where we go next.”

“I’m inspired by GivingTuesday’s vision of radical generosity,” says Rose, “defined by the transformational powers of empathy and solidarity to create a world in which the collective recognition of humanity fundamentally respects what each of us can give, receive, and learn from one another. I’m especially excited for the opportunity to contribute to, and learn from GivingTuesday’s endeavor to drive better decision-making, build a more resilient social sector, and accelerate equitable social innovation around the world through big data.”
