How charities & businesses are using GivingTuesday – the round up


Today is GivingTuesday – the 10th since it launched in 2012 to encourage people to do good on the day following the excesses of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend. Here’s a selection of the ways the day is being used for good.

JustGiving shares some GivingTuesday stats

JustGiving has shared some stats for GivingTuesday, revealing that in 2021 it saw more than £1.3 million donated on the day itself. This year JustGiving launched its GivingTuesday portal, allowing fundraisers to raise money without transaction fees. The portal had already raised almost £25,000 ahead of Black Friday and GivingTuesday.

Pascale Harvie, General Manager and President of JustGiving said:

“Over the last few years we’ve been incredibly proud of all the money raised for great causes on GivingTuesday.


“As a founding partner of the initiative, we’re always looking for opportunities to support our charity network with fundraising on the day. That’s why we’ve launched our Giving Tuesday portal, making it easier for donors to give and charities to fundraise.”

The Entertainer to match all in-store donations given through Pennies

Customers from The Entertainer have raised over £1 million for children’s hospitals and other children’s charities in the last two years alone through its partnership with Pennies. To celebrate, and to mark Giving Tuesday, The Entertainer will match fund the total of all monies raised by customers through Pennies donations across its stores today.

More than 2 million individual micro-donations were made by customers at The Entertainer across 170 stores in the last two years of the pandemic, raising over £1 million. This new income has supported 289 charities, because it includes grants of £1,000 to small, localised charities nominated by stores – in an initiative called ‘Jack Gives Back’.

Anglia Giving to donate £10,000 to charities

Not-for-profit company, Anglia Giving, which runs Charity Vouchers, is giving out £10,000 to charities today, to coincide with Giving Tuesday.

Charity Vouchers are gift vouchers which are given as presents for special occasions, like birthdays and Christmas. Recipients simply choose a UK Registered Charity to donate their voucher to with vouchers bought online. The service is now in its 21st year. The company gives away any surplus funds it has every year to UK charities. This is its largest series of donations to date.

10 charities will each be receiving £1,000. The charities are: Shelter, NSPCC, Citizens Advice, Young Minds, British Red Cross, RSPCA, Marie Curie Cancer Support, Age UK, Trussell Trust, and Dementia UK.

Mark your calendars for November 29—the most generous day of the year!

GlobalGiving to give away more than $1mn

GlobalGiving has set aside more than $1 million to give away this GivingTuesday with its Move A Million campaign. Donors can multiply the impact for their favourite changemakers and causes with all of the vetted, charitable projects on GlobalGiving that receive GivingTuesday donations during this 24-hour period earning a portion of the money. Monthly donations are also eligible for GlobalGiving’s 100% match.

For the past decade, #GivingTuesday has inspired people from all walks of life to give back in whatever ways they can. As we mark its 10th anniversary, I hope this movement continues to grow—and to remind us that everyone has something to offer.https://t.co/C7wLc0aTz1 pic.twitter.com/kOkFI0ueXv

GivingTuesday aims to raise $26 million over five years to fund the project and so far has 40% of that amount committed.

FatFace has partnered with Shelter again this Christmas, and today is doubling how much it donates from sales of its special Shelter collection. This means 20% of sales will be going to the charity.
