What is the #GivingTuesdayPledge

The #GivingTuesdayPledge will help you share how you are supporting good causes on Giving Tuesday. You can share your pledge on social media in the weeks and days running up to Giving Tuesday and on the day itself. By sharing your commitment, you can help inspire others to do something to support a good cause.

We also know there are those of you who would love to do something on the day to support your favourite charity but for whatever reason can’t. The #GivingTuesdayPledge will give you an opportunity to commit to doing something at a future date but still get involved in this buzz of this incredible generosity movement.

With a #GivingTuesdayPledge, you can commit to doing something new, improve on what you already do, or continue with your current generosity activities. This could mean giving a small monthly donation to a charity or setting aside time each month for volunteering.  Together, all these pledges will combine to make a world of difference to so many lives.

For charities

The #GivingTuesdayPledge is a chance to let your supporters (current and potential) know what you would like them to do for you. If you would like your pledge to be hosted on this page please email givingtuesday@cafonline.org.

For example, a dog rescue charity might ask for pledges to volunteer 2 hours every other week to walk dogs in their care, an older persons’ charity might ask to be included in a payroll giving scheme or a children’s charity might ask for toy donations at Christmas time.

For businesses

The #GivingTuesdayPledge is a great opportunity for you to announce your CSR objectives for the following year. It’s also a brilliant way to encourage your staff to use your volunteering days, your offer of matching charitable fundraising or sharing the skills they use to support your business with charities in need.
