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.
On November 27th, 2018, GivingTuesdayLiberia hosted its frist major activities in partnership with 6 organizations in Liberia. We invite you to get involved to help Liberia’s charitable organizations succeed.
GivingTuesdayLiberia is connected to diverse groups of individuals, communities, and organizations, in both Liberia and the diaspora, working towards one common purpose: to create effective partnerships among Liberian CSOs, NGOs, schools, and businesses. We believe an organized approach to creating impact is necessary for encouraging generosity and volunteering. In November 2018, GivingTuesdayLiberia hosted a major event in Liberia. The event highlighted and promoted the vital workS being done by NGOs, schools, and individuals across Liberia; while encouraging others to get involved.
While we value the efforts of nonprofit organizations operating in Liberia, we also understand the challenges they face. This platform exists to provide support for all legitimate Liberian charities! Our approach is to:
- PARTNER – We partner with legitimate nonprofits operating in Liberia to reduce their challenges.
- EDUCATE – We educate our partners on fundraising for their organizations as a network to increase impact.
- CHALLENGE – We challenge our partners and all Liberians to join a national movement dedicated to improving the giving and volunteering culture in Liberia.
Join the movement – whether it’s some of your time, the power of your voice, your shared resource, or a donation, your act of giving something strengthens Liberia’s volunteer culture and giving movement to create a better Liberia through partnership.
