As you know, GivingTuesday is an international movement to give back to our communities after Thanksgiving and the consumerism of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. It’s always CyberGrants’ busiest, most impactful day of the year. You could say it’s our version of the Super Bowl.
Overall, GivingTuesday raised $168 million online, which is an increase of 44%!
