GivingTuesday was created by Henry Timms and Asha Curan in 2012 at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact—a cultural center in New York City that has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back since 1874.
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. With a mission to build a more just and generous world, the movment is fueled by effective partnerships, contemporary collaborations, powerful business sponsors, and strong social media engagement.
Around the world, people from 98 countries participated in #GivingTuesday in 2016. In 2017, Global leaders of 50 countries were championing the movement. And by 2019, global leaders from 10 African countries were approved to officially join the movement. To date, the GivingTuesday movement is now the most effective nonprofit model in the world.
Currently, the only African serving on GivingTuesday's board in New York is a Liberian.
