The LGBTQ Center Long Beach will be participating in Giving Tuesday, a global day of generosity taking place on November 30, 2021.
Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity—to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected. People show generosity in different ways during Giving Tuesday, but everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts.
Since this first annual day of giving in 2012 nonprofits, like The Center, have raised more than $1.9 billion. In 2019, nonprofits in the US raised more than $500 million dollars online alone.
According to GivingTuesday.org, this day of giving was founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation as a day that encourages people to do good. In July 2019, GivingTuesday spun out into its own organization, led by GivingTuesday co-founder, Asha Curran, as its CEO.
