Schedule Colorado Gives Day Donations on GivingTuesday!

By Angela Bevacqua, Senior Communications Specialist

GivingTuesday is a campaign driven by social media to create a global day of service and charitable giving at the beginning of the holiday season. It’s a response to consumer-driven days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and aims to encourage giving world-wide.

This year 
#GivingTuesday takes place on December 1—one week before Colorado Gives Day. Although #GivingTuesday encourages acts of service, it does not accept or distribute donations. 

Luckily, ColoradoGives.org does, so December 1 is also a perfect time to plan your Colorado Gives Day donations or schedule them in advance!

If you’re a nonprofit on 
ColoradoGives.org, here are some suggested social media posts to share on Dec. 1:
