Support Loyola on Giving Tuesday
WHAT IS GIVING TUESDAY?
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two days for getting deals. Now, we have Giving Tuesday: A global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 29, 2016, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Let’s all come together to celebrate generosity on Giving Tuesday, November 29, and give back to our favorite charities and organizations. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of our great tradition of generosity.
HISTORY BEHIND GIVING TUESDAY
Led by the friends and partners of the 92nd Street Y in New York City, Giving Tuesday, was first introduced in 2012. This idea came about as a way to channel the generous spirit of the holiday season to inspire charitable giving nation-wide. Ultimately, the goal was to promote and celebrate the great American tradition of giving, but this philanthropy-based holiday has turned into so much more in 5 years of celebrating.
Since its foundation in 2012, Giving Tuesday has grown significantly, and is now celebrated throughout world. Organizations each year have joined in on this cause to celebrate, promote, and motivate their employees, customers, constituents, and the general public, to give back on this day, amidst the consumerism of the holidays.
