Giving Tuesday Now (May 5)

You are here

GivingTuesday, the groundbreaking global generosity movement, announced #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving and unity, set to take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. The day is designed to drive an influx of generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.

For anyone who ever wished to have the power to make a really big impact on their community, and on the world, GivingTuesday can be a dream come true.

United Way of Onslow County Stands ready to keep the momentum going this year to fuel the critical community cornerstones of education, financial stability and health here in Onslow County.

GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people in our community to rally around the causes they believe in and build stronger neighborhoods, cities and regions. On this day, every single act of volunteerism or donation to United Way of Onslow County is amplified by the sheer number of people from our community joining in.

Established in 2012, in the U.S. as a celebratory kickoff to the holiday giving season, GivingTuesday happens on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving and has become a worldwide philanthropic event. This year, GivingTuesday will be on December 3 and you can join in to help power change for Onslow County, whether it’s your first time or you’ve participated before.

The power of one. The impact of many.

The best part about GivingTuesday? It doesn’t take a heroic effort to make an impact. Donate the $5 you would spend on a cup of coffee and it can provide a child the school supplies he needs to thrive in school. That $10 app for your phone can feed a child for a weekend. And the power of any amount you donate is supercharged by the collective giving that will happen on May 5.

If you’ve never participated in GivingTuesday, mark your calendar to earn your cape this year by making a gift to United Way of Onslow County.
