“GivingTuesday has become a really important part of our yearly calendar. It is a great opportunity for us, not only for fundraising but for connecting with our community of donors and volunteers both online and in person.” - Richelle Leckey
"We are incredibly humbled by the way our community continues to support us on Giving Tuesday each year. We’ve raised over $1.5 million in the last seven years to support our network of food banks, meal programs, and shelters across Nova Scotia." - Nick Jennery
“Our Giving Tuesday initiative was simply to thank our entire network – donors, volunteers and loyal supporters, while launching our holiday appeal. We raised over $7,500 in online donations on GivingTuesday! We look forward to even further engagement with our donors, staff and volunteers next year!” - Lauren Floyd
"GivingTuesday is a disruption of the fundraising status quo. It’s like a huge R&D lab for public generosity. And to see the experiments in volunteerism, public engagement, corporate creativity and yes, fundraising results, is a huge inspiration for me personally. I keep volunteering in local civic leadership because I learn so much more than just about fundraising, we are running an annual generosity incubator at the level of billions of dollars in scale. It’s exciting, educational and inspirational for my network and myself.” -Paul Nazareth
"GivingTuesday has been a very rewarding experience for our region. Over the past year we have witnessed first hand the tremendous support our residents have received from the charitable and nonprofit sector. Encouraging our community to give back by volunteering their time, donating funds or acknowledging those who have made a difference not only strengthens our connections but also ensures a strong and resilient region." - Vivian Curl
