About Giving Tuesday #GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. #GivingTuesday was born and incubated at the 92nd Street Y and the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact in New York City. #GivingTuesday is now an independent nonprofit and a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. The Giving Tuesday began as an idea in 2011, the brainchild of the non-profit Mary-Arrchie Theater Company in Chicago and then-producing director Carlo Lorenzo Garcia, who urged shoppers to consider donating to charity after they had finished their Cyber Monday shopping.
