It’s almost #GivingTuesday. Tell us your nonprofit’s fundraising plans

And we'll include them in a roundup next week.

Giving Tuesday 2018 is happening Nov. 27.

Tuesday, Nov. 27, is the seventh annual Giving Tuesday, the day when nonprofits around the world encourage their supporters to donate to year-end campaigns and related causes.

Think of it as the philanthropic answer to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the day on which people encouraged to donate instead of buy.

Last year, we rounded up over 70 local nonprofits promoting Giving Tuesday campaigns. This year, we’re doing it again. And we already see a bunch of local mission organizations promoting their days of giving:

  • Legal aid nonprofit Support Center for Child Advocates is hosting its annual holiday toy drive kickoff at 1500 Market Street — plus, trying to raise $20,000.
  • Twist Out Cancer is hoping to raise more than $60,000 to expand its Brushes with Cancer program. All donations of at least $175 made before Thursday, Nov. 29, will be matched at $175 by The Coleman Foundation.
  • And the Fund for the School District of Philadelphia hopes to raise $10,000 for music education in 10 Philly public schools via the hashtag #PhillyInHarmony.

Next Tuesday, we’ll publish a longer list of all the local orgs that we know are participating. Want to be included? Let us know the way founder Henry Timms intended:

Please note that for the purposes of this list, we will only be including local organizations that have a specific fundraising campaign or goal for the day — say, a board match, or an in-person event. You must do more than post a “Donate” link in your Thanksgiving newsletter.

P.S. Heads up, Facebook and PayPal are matching donations made on the social media platform up to $250,000 per nonprofit and $20,000 per donor. It’s first come, first served, though — the matching will max out at $7 million, so ask your friends to donate early.
