Giving Tuesday 2015

Be a Part of Giving Tuesday!

December 1, 2015
#GivingTuesday™ is a national movement to encourage philanthropic activities that support nonprofit organizations. We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday™, a global day dedicated to giving back. The goal of #GivingTuesday™ is to inspire personal philanthropy, volunteerism and to encourage bigger, better and smarter charitable giving during the holiday season, showing that the world truly gives as good as it gets.

Who can participate?

It is a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more.

After you make a gift, encourage friends, family and colleagues to donate as well by using the #GivingTuesday hashtag in your social networks. Be part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.

Can I give to the Y?

Of course, and there is no other nonprofit quite like the Y. That’s because, in DeKalb County, we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but deliver, positive change.

The Kishwaukee Family YMCA is a mission driven organization dedicated to developing strong children, families and communities across DeKalb County through academic readiness, character development, fitness and healthy living. Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good.
