Local nonprofits unite for GivingTuesday on November 29

JACKSON, Tenn. — Local nonprofits are uniting in honor of GivingTuesday on November 29.

GivingTuesday is the largest global generosity movement encouraging people to transform their communities through acts of kindness and financial giving.

Annually celebrated on the Tuesday immediately following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s an opportunity to pause and give back during holiday shopping.

A news release states since 2020, over 60 nonprofits across the region have came together as #GivingTuesday731, collectively raising over $350,000 for their organizations.

“Everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts,” stated Matt Marshall, United Way of West Tennessee President/CEO. “This our third time participating in GivingTuesday as GivingTuesday731, and we hope more people join us during this special day as either a nonprofit organization and/or a giver. We believe in the power of collective impact because everyone has
something to give. And their support matters in more ways than one.”
