Description

Title of Giving Tuesday 2018

Consider joining us if you are a Calgary & Area Charity, Non-profit, Volunteer Organization, Small & Family Business, Corporation or an organization who supports community in various forms

GivingTuesday in Calgary:

Calgary has been a leader in many areas including community building through volunteerism, financial support and corporate involvement. In the first year of Giving Tuesday in Canada (2013), Calgary’s Mayor Naheed Nenshi was among the first municipal leaders to issue a proclamation officially recognizing GivingTuesday. Since then, robust rallies have grown and taken place recently at Odd Fellows Hall (2016) and the top of The Bow (2017) thanks to the generous support of Cenovus Energy.

Building on the success of prior years, the 2018 GivingTuesdayYYC kickoff is moving to a 7,000 square foot facility owned and operated by a community partner.

What is GivingTuesday and Why Come to GivingTuesdayYYC?

GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners - nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals - to encourage and amplify acts of kindness – no matter how small or large. Across Canada and around the world, GivingTuesday unites communities by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.

Register, join the Calgary community and profile your organization as we celebrate and kickoff the giving season with the 6th Annual GivingTuesdayYYC rally on November 27th.

The first 50 nonprofit agencies, charities and NGOs to register will be invited to bring their freestanding banner (not to exceed 36" wide and 10' tall) to participate in a "wall of care" to demonstrate how engaged and involved Calgarians are in making the City of Calgary a great place to live, work, grow and thrive.

GivingTuesdayYYC is made possible through the support of the following community partners (Note: Additional community partners will be joining as the kickoff date nears).GivingTuesdayYYC 2018 Sponsors 20181108
