Donate to a charity or organization that has impacted your life. Remember to share that you gave and encourage your family and friends to join you in giving back on #GivingTuesday.
Getting Your Community Involved

Giving Part of Your Paycheck
Payroll giving is becoming more and more popular at both companies and nonprofits. Donate a part of each paycheck to charity or talk to your management about how your organization can make giving back part of its official policy. It helps you and it helps your community. It’s an easy way to keep the spirit of #GivingTuesday alive year-round.
