Vital Stats from Giving Tuesday 2020

2020 was an unprecedented year. COVID-19 has created a perfect storm for charities – but as we have watched the pandemic unfold, many of us have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of generosity from a public who are facing also their own challenges.

We were thrilled to see this play out on 1st December 2020 for Giving Tuesday, and can now share some of the amazing vital statistics from the day and celebrate how Giving Tuesday partners and their supporters truly made the best of difficult year.

All the numbers that you can find below, as well as data from Visa showing a 42% increase in donations last year compared to Giving Tuesday 2019, spell out an incredible day for generosity.

These statistics are an amazing testament to the hard work of Giving Tuesday partners and the continued generosity of the public – and show the Giving Tuesday campaign going from strength to strength even during times of great strain.
