#GivingTuesdayCLT - 10 Years of Generosity in Charlotte





10 Years of Generosity in Charlotte!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 27, 2023 

Charlotte, N.C.- In 2012, Giving Tuesday was launched as a simple idea - a day that encourages people to come together and do good in their communities. Always held on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, after we have eaten and shopped, Giving Tuesday is a day to give back to local nonprofits. Last year this day inspired $3.1B in giving on a single day in the U.S.

Here in Charlotte, #GivingTuesdayCLT hosted by SHARE Charlotte is the local response to this global movement. Now in its tenth year,  #GivingTuesdayCLT is an unprecedented collaboration of hundreds of Charlotte nonprofits as well as corporations, local businesses, and individuals coming together through good.  On this single Tuesday over the past 9 years, #GivingTuesdayCLT has influenced more than $40M in value given to Charlotte nonprofits


On November 28th, the Charlotte community will be invited to visit www.sharecharlotte.org to:

  • Give Money:  You can make a financial gift to an organization that is meaningful to you.
    • BONUS GOOD- The first 300 donors who give $50 or more to their favorite nonprofit on November 28th through sharecharlotte.org  will have their donation generously matched by Lowe’s in the form of one $50 electronic gift card to that nonprofit! 
  • Give Time: You can choose from hundreds of ways to give your time either virtually or in-person.
  • Give Goods: You can shop nonprofits’ Amazon wish lists and give them exactly what they need.

To celebrate the big day and amplify generosity in our city, SHARE Charlotte will host #GivingTuesdayCLT Headquarters at  Community Matters Cafe between 10am-1pm with local nonprofits, local media, corporate partners and community leaders.
