When Is Giving Tuesday 2021?

Fresh off of Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday will take place on Tuesday, November 30, 2021.  Since 2012,  Giving Tuesday has been a movement to give back to charities after such a consumer-driven mentality of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This global charitable movement continues to explode with growth year after year, having raised almost $2.5 billion last year in the U.S. The trajectory of this online and social media movement will only continue to proliferate, with 34.8 million people participating in Giving Tuesday 2020 — a 29% increase over 2019.
