GivingTuesday Toolkit for Givers

There are so many ways you can help spread kindness on November 30  for GivingTuesday. Visit GivingTuesday.org/Ideas and use the tools below for ideas on how to get involved and make a difference.

How to Give on GivingTuesday

GivingTuesday is about giving of all types some may choose to give a financial contribution to their favorite cause or a fundraising drive, others will help their neighbors, start an advocacy campaign, donate goods or extra supplies, or just share gratitude. 

The first thing to do is to rally your network. Giving is so much more impactful (and fun) when it’s done in a group!  Think about your group chat, your block club, your neighborhood Facebook or Nextdoor group…  

Next, think about how you might want to give together. You might contribute to a local cause or collaborate to solve a community issue. 

Here are a few ideas, but the possibilities are absolutely endless:

Tweet from Brittany Packnett: "Time for another #GivingSpree! Today we can MATCH up to $3500 (!!) in donations to your local food banks, homeless shelters, domestic violence networks,. Let's make sure our neighbors have what they need in crisis. Reply with your donation receipt and a link!

  • Discover a local fundraiser, community drive or coordinated event to join others in your area or with your same interests in giving back — they need your help.
  • Give to your favorite cause. (Check with your employer to see if they match donations! You can do this quickly by using Double the Donation – which is offering their tool for free on GivingTuesday! You can choose to donate stock with these easy tips found in this guide from Donate Stock. Or you can donate crypto if that’s your thing.
  • Share kindness with your neighbors–check on those who are alone and may need help with errands or just a friendly voice to talk to.
  • Volunteer virtually! Our friends at VolunteerMatch can help you find an opportunity near you (or you can help a nonprofit from anywhere in the world since it’s remote!)
  • Share a quick tutorial that offers up a skill or lesson to help others discover something new or helps students add to their at-home learning.
  • Encourage others to share kindness and be generous during this time.
  • Match others’ gifts to your favorite nonprofit and make an even greater impact! (Example at right)
