Giving Tuesday is December 1st

November 30, 2020

Giving Tuesday Dec 1, 2020There’s Black Friday… Cyber Monday… and now Giving Tuesday. There are many ways you can get involved with Homeward NYC during this global day of giving.

Make a Gift

  • Making a gift is the fastest way to help homeless young families, seniors, and LGBTQ young adults—and allows us to direct resources where needed most.

Get Social

Share the Good

  • Share what you’ve been doing to spread generosity in your local community. Whether or not that generosity has to do with Homeward NYC, we want to hear about the good you’re doing.

Ask About Matching Gifts

  • Check to see if your company or your partner’s company has a matching gifts program. Some companies even match 2-to-1 on Giving Tuesday.
