#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of charities, families, businesses, and individuals to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year on November 28, 2017, to kick-off the holiday giving season and to inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities and to give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support.
In 2016, Mayor Sly James and the City of Kansas City, Missouri proclaimed #GivingTuesday in Kansas City as a day of giving. Each year local organizations are encouraged to use the hashtag #GivingTuesdayKC on social media on to create a local conversation about giving, and generate a comprehensive list of participating organizations in Kansas City. Kansas Citians can use #GivingTuesdayKC on social media to find organizations that are making an impact in the local community they care about.
Check back in Fall 2017 for a list of participating Kansas City organizations and #GivingTuesdayKC resources!
