Giving Tuesday 2019

Together we can solve some of the most critical problems our communities are facing. For anyone who ever wished to have the power to make a really big impact in our community,  GivingTuesday is the perfect time.

GivingTuesday is an international movement that harnesses the generosity of millions of people around the world to support the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. On this day, every single act of volunteerism or donation to United Way is amplified by the sheer number of people joining in. Last year, more than 3.6 million people from 150 countries joined together to raise $400 million on GivingTuesday. United Way of Coastal North Carolina with our nonprofit partners, stands ready to keep the momentum going this year to strengthen the critical community cornerstones of education, financial stability and health in coastal North Carolina.


Established in 2012 in the U.S. as a celebratory kickoff to the holiday giving season, GivingTuesday happens on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and has become a worldwide philanthropic event. This year, GivingTuesday will be on December 3 and you can join in to help power change, whether it’s your first time or you’ve participated before. 

The power of one. The impact of many.


The best part about GivingTuesday? It doesn’t take a heroic effort to make an impact. Donate the $5 you would spend on a cup of coffee and it can provide 25 meals for a family of four. That $10 app for your phone can become books for 50 preschoolers. And the power of any amount you donate is supercharged by the collective giving that will happen on December 3. 


If you’ve never participated in GivingTuesday, mark your calendar to donate to United Way of Coastal Carolina and change lives for the better.
