Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 by a team at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact in New York City. The special Giving Tuesday activities include the ability for companies to reserve time for employees to spend with Mud Bay kitten ambassadors for a $100 suggested donation. A report released today by the New York Attorney General found that a third of all donated dollars in New York State a year ago, more than $400 million went to professional fundraisers, not the charity.
Check with other organizations to see if they have a dedicated page, or you can give through a national page.
But these are by no means the only local charities or nonprofits worth supporting. Once you configure the app, you have a chance to win a $1,000 donation to your charity through their monthly Doofl ("donation raffle" or "Do-Full").
Of course, we also understand that people may want to help, but aren't in a position to assist monetarily right now. Many Carroll nonprofits rely heavily on volunteers to carry out their missions and their leaders will tell you that much of their accomplishments and contributions would never get off the ground without the incredible volunteers and volunteer hours they receive.
To take part in Giving Tuesday, all you need to do is pick a charity you trust and visit their website to donate.
