WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.


 

 

This year on Tuesday, December 1st, the San Antonio River Foundation is participating in #GivingTuesday: a global day dedicated to giving, as part of our Annual Campaign.

Visit www.itsmyriver.org to donate.

Last year, more than 30,000 organizations in 68 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Mark your calendar for December 1st and consider giving a gift to the San Antonio River Foundation for #GivingTuesday. Visit our website for more information on the Foundation and our community projects and initiatives.www.sariverfoundation.org


 

KRTU 91.7 FM Joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement

Your home for jazz in San Antonio, KRTU, has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.

Occurring this year on December 1, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. To balance the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday aims to kick-off a seasonal sentiment of generosity and inspire people to celebrate the holidays by giving back to the causes they support.

KRTU is a non-commercial, educational (NCE) radio station broadcasting from Trinity University since 1976. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, KRTU is a leader in commercial-free, listener-supported radio specializing in diverse music programming that is locally-curated and showcases regional musicians, with a focus on community outreach and education.

92Y − a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around its core values of community service and giving back − conceptualized #GivingTuesday as a new way of linking individuals and causes to strengthen communities and encourage giving. In 2014, the third year of the movement, #GivingTuesday brought together 30,000 partners in 68 countries and registered 32.7 million impressions on Twitter, with its eponymous hashtag mentioned 698,600 times. Since 2012, online giving on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving has increased more than four-fold, based on findings by Blackbaud and the Indiana University’s Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, produced in partnership with the Case Foundation.

“We have been incredibly inspired by the generosity in time, efforts and ideas that have brought our concept for a worldwide movement into reality,” said Henry Timms, founder of #GivingTuesday and executive director of 92Y. “As we embark on our fourth year of #GivingTuesday, we are encouraged by the early response from partners eager to continue making an impact in this global conversation.”

Those who are interested in joining KRTU’s #GivingTuesday initiative can visit join.krtu.org to make a donation.
