Lead GivingTuesday in Your Community

Want to make change in your community?

We’re looking for local leaders to start and/or help lead GivingTuesday in your town, city, province or cause area.  GivingTuesday leaders are a diverse range of individuals who work to build a local movement. Our leaders all have one important thing in common - they are committed to generosity and creating positive change in their communities. 

Most leaders recruit a few colleagues or friends to create a team and engage local charities, businesses and other stakeholders. Each community movement is responsible for organizing their own GivingTuesday campaign and activities, with support from the GivingTuesday team.

What is a GivingTuesday Community Movement?

View GivingTuesday FAQs

GivingTuesday has prosered in Canada thanks to a growing network of local movements with dynamic leaders all over the country.

GivingTuesday Communities come together around a common geography (eg. city, town or province) or a common cause (eg. promoting adult literacy or science centres) to collaborate, innovate and inspire their communities to make a difference. Community campaigns find creative ways to mobilize their networks, host volunteer events, raise funds for local organizations, spark kindness, and much more.

"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
