#GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for #GivingTuesday.
#GivingTuesday is one of the best ways you can make meaningful impact through investments in local services and supports right here through United Way and our Community Fund. The United Way Community Fund is the most powerful way to invest in your community, as 1 in 4 residents will be impacted by a local program, service, or strategy that United Way supports. Donations to our Community Fund help to give emergency shelter for people experiencing homelessness, mental health counselling for low-income families, and crisis support services for individuals and families in need to name a few.
