Giving Tuesday 2019

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season.

#GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.

Literacy Council students and volunteer tutors have raised more than $3,500 for Literacy during the 2017 and 2018 Giving Tuesday campaigns.
