Generocity is part of the GivingTuesdayPHL community campaign.
GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 with a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. This year, that day is December 3.
“GivingTuesday inspires people all around the world to embrace their power to drive progress around the causes they care about, not just on one day but throughout the year.” said Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s CEO, and co-founder. “With country and community leaders, millions of organizations, and countless givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world.”
According to the organization, in seven years the global GivingTuesday movement has raised billions of dollars for causes around the world and gets 14.2 billion impressions on social media from people and organizations speaking up for the causes that matter to them and encouraging others to get involved.
“People will demonstrate generosity in many ways,” a release from the organization states, “whether it’s helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving to causes we care about, every act of generosity counts.”
There are even ways for children to get involved via #GivingTuesdayKids, which encourages children to pick a project or a cause, rally friends and classmates to join in the project, and then share photos of the preparations and the activation before and on December 3.

Like the GivingTuesdayKids campaign, there are other national GivingTuesday coalition campaigns: #GivingNewsDay benefits nonprofit newsrooms; #LatinxGive; #iGiveCatholic; #GivingTuesdayMilitary; #AtheistsGive, and more.
But for individual Philadelphians, GivingTuesday can be much more than just donating to a national coalition, it can be about actively changing the quality of life in our local communities — and seeing the impact of our contributions close up. Many of the nonprofits Generocity covers throughout the year participate in GivingTuesday, and the issues they grapple with, year-round, are as diverse as our great city.
We will be publishing a round-up of those local efforts just in advance of December 3. If you’d like your organization to be included in the round-up, as well as have us signal boost your efforts on social, send us your organization’s information, no later than November 29!-30-
