Giving Tuesday 2019 is over, but that doesn’t mean the giving has to end! See our post about all the ways you can give through the OCF

Giving Tuesday takes place on December 3, 2019

What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is an international day to give back. It takes place annually after Black Friday and Cyber Monday—a contrast to those busy shopping days. The charitable community marks Giving Tuesday by encouraging individuals, companies, and other groups to support important causes.
