What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is the international day of charitable giving, which is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving each year. Launched in 2012, in response to the the intense focus on consumerism immediately following the Thanksgiving holiday, Giving Tuesday was designed to intentionally shift the focus to the care and well-being of others through philanthropic support. This year, on Tuesday, Nov. 29, the Arcadia community will celebrate the international day of philanthropy in support of our University and students during UKnightedTuesday.
