225GIVES invites Baton Rouge to support Giving Tuesday 2021
This year, Giving Tuesday falls on November 30 and people around the world are using the day to support fellow neighbors in need.
Giving Tuesday, often described as a global generosity movement, is held each year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving.
Since this first annual day of giving in 2012, nonprofits in the United States have raised more than $1.9 billion. In 2019, nonprofits in the US raised more than $500 million dollars online alone.
Locally, one group is uniting a host of Louisiana-based nonprofits to make the best of Giving Tuesday.
The group, 225GIVES has partnered with Capital Area United Way (CAUW) to set up a 24-hour online giving day on Giving Tuesday.
Several local nonprofits that fall under 225GIVES umbrella are listed below.
