America's Charities Celebrates #GivingTuesdayNow

Coronavirus has changed – everything. Yet, we know when people unite around a common cause, real and lasting change happens. With this in mind, America’s Charities is celebrating #GivingTuesdayNow, a new global day of giving and unity taking place on May 5, 2020, in emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

#GivingTuesdayNow is taking place in addition to the regularly scheduled #GivingTuesday on December 1, 2020.

One of the best things we can do while we maintain physical distance is to show social connection on behalf of each other and our communities. Activities in which we can all partake include:

  • Donate to the Coronavirus Response Fund to simultaneously ensure individuals affected by the pandemic have access to food, while also helping governments around the world immediately respond to the pandemic and strengthen health systems for billions.

  • Give to the individual organizations that you love most – no amount is too little and nonprofits need our support.

  • Support healthcare workers by donating supplies, advocating for them, and staying home.

  • Help out small businesses by buying gift cards or writing an online review.

  • Combat loneliness by reaching out to a neighbor, relative, seniors, or veterans.
