As of 2022, there are over 1.5 million nonprofit organizations in the United States. These organizations are not driven by profit but by dedication to a cause. Nonprofits have become such an essential part of communities that there is a whole day dedicated to them, and it is called Giving Tuesday.
This holiday takes place every year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Giving Tuesday is a global movement that encourages people and organizations to donate their time and money to nonprofits throughout their communities and around the world.
You can take part in this global day by yourself or by company. Denver Media Group team has created this helpful guide to learn ways to give back to your community and what organizations need your support all year round.
Five ways to give back on Giving Tuesday
Nonprofits are in need of all sorts of help besides just money. If you or your organization are looking for ways to participate in Giving Tuesday, check out these five ideas.
Give your support
If you have a cause you are passionate about it, find a local or national organization to support. It can be an organization that helps feed your community or help foster children. Once you have found a nonprofit you want to support, stay up-to-date with their information.
Give your time
Nonprofits are always looking for extra helping hands. If you or your organization have a few hours to spare, consider donating your time. You can help them with events, donation drives or even cleaning.
Give your money
Aside from giving a one-time donation, consider joining your favorite nonprofit’s donation programs. These programs allow you to make a donation every month, so you can help to continuously fund their many programs.
Give your skills
Since nonprofits run off donations, they do not always have the funds to hire professionals. If you have a useful skill that can help, consider lending your skill to that nonprofit.
Give your voice
An easy way to support your nonprofit is by sharing its message. Tell a friend or family member about your favorite nonprofit. You can also increase the organization’s reach by sharing their posts across your social media accounts.
