What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a worldwide day dedicated to giving back and celebrating generosity. Built on the gratitude felt during the Thanksgiving holiday and following the consumer-centered events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday takes place on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On #GivingTuesday, charities, families, businesses, community centers, churches and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
Who Participates in #Giving Tuesday?
#GivingTuesday brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners— nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals—to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness— little gestures of love which Pope Francis encourages.
How Do I Become Part of the #Giving Tuesday Celebration?
It’s a simple idea. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity. #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many think about end-of-year giving. On #GivingTuesday we are asking the entire Saint Patrick Catholic Church & School community to support the parish or the school or both!
Make #GivingTuesday Part of Your Year-End Charitable Giving
It is never to early to start thinking about year-end charitable giving.
When you itemize deductions, funds used to make gifts are subtracted from the amount subject to tax. This means the higher your tax bracket, the more you save.
For example, a gift of $1,000 by someone who itemizes in a 35% bracket can save $350 in tax versus $250 for a person in a 25% tax bracket.
Regardless of your income tax bracket, charitable gifts can provide welcome savings at tax time. Additionally, you can feel good about being a thoughtful steward of your resources and supporting your parish community.
