December 1, 2020 is Giving Tuesday, the global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving 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.
Join us in celebrating #GivingTuesday and the true spirit of the season, by making a donation to support Scouting in our community, or by inviting your friends and family to do the same.
Through your support of Scouting this #GivingTuesday, you’re helping young people grow to become citizens who are trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
There are many ways that you can give to Scouting.
- Fulfill your 2020 Friends of Scouting pledge.
- Contact your Human Resources representative to see if they will match your Friends of Scouting donation.
- Check with your employer if they donate to charities that you donate your time to.
- Assemble a team to participate in a council golf fundraiser.â
