At GiveGab, we’ve been celebrating the global giving movement known as #GivingTuesday since it was first established in 2012 by 92nd Street Y.
“#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.”
Last year, we helped organizations raise over $43 million during #GivingTuesday 2017 through collaborative Giving Day events, like NYGivesDay and ILGive, as well as through individual campaigns launched through GiveGab.com.
This year, we had our biggest and best #GivingTuesday yet, with $52 million donated online and over 75k gifts from more than 3,550 nonprofits!
Here are the results from some 2018 #GivingTuesday Giving Days worth checking out:
Donors, participating organizations and administrators were able to watch their Giving Day unfold, in real time, by watching their leaderboards.
