Six local nonprofits started with the idea of creating a culture of giving in Central Florida and now they want to take it to the main stage. With Giving Tuesday just around the corner, Orlando Gives is harnessing the collective power of a unique blend of partners in Orlando —nonprofits, businesses and corporations as well as families and individuals—
Orlando Gives joins the fourth year of the #GivingTuesday movement, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. #GivingTuesday is held annually, occurring this year on December 1, on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
