The Power of Giving
SCROLL DOWN WITHIN THE FORM TO COMPLETE YOUR TRANSACTION
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.
Last year, more than 3.6 million people from 150 countries joined together to raise $400 million on GivingTuesday. United Way of Buffalo & Erie County stands ready to keep the momentum going this year to fuel the critical community cornerstones of education, financial stability, and health here in Western New York.
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 Buffalo & Erie 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 our community, whether it’s your first time or you’ve participated before.
If you’ve never participated in GivingTuesday, mark your calendar to earn your cape this year by making a gift to United Way of Buffalo & Erie County.
