It seems like just yesterday that we hosted our very first Giving Day in 2015, #GivingIsGorges, within our own backyard of Tompkins County, NY.
Things have changed a lot since then, with over 500 Giving Days under our belt with the acquisition of fellow leader, Kimbia, in January of 2018.
Our Giving Day platform has grown rapidly in both functionality and popularity over the past three years, and we couldn’t be more proud of the organizations behind each incredible day of philanthropy across the nation.
This year has been our biggest for Giving Day volume, with over fifty launched from January to June alone, and many more still to come before the year ends.
