Thanksgiving. Small Business Saturday. Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday?
Established in 2012, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Last year, Hands On Charlotte joined forces with more than 60 other Charlotte-area nonprofits for the 2014 #GivingTuesdayCLT campaign. Our friends at SHARE Charlotte coordinated the campaign, securing $10,000 in matching funds from the Knight Foundation. Over $377,000 was donated, and more than 9,000 volunteer hours were pledged to participating agencies.
This year, #GivingTuesdayCLT is bigger than ever. HOC is thrilled to be one of 108 Charlotte-area nonprofits participating in the 2015 campaign, which is being coordinated again by SHARE Charlotte. We’re joining forces to raise a total of $2 million during the three-week campaign, which culminates on Giving Tuesday, December 1.
Financial donations received by Hands On Charlotte between now and December 1 will be eligible for our share of $50,000 in matching funds provided by the Knight Foundation, Bank of America, Foundation For The Carolinas, the Reemprise Fund, and presenting sponsor Google Fiber.
