Written by Nicole Copsis    on November 19, 2018    in

#GivingTuesdayCLT is a big deal, and this year the goal is to inspire 1,076,837 acts of good - one act for every estimated resident of Mecklenburg County! 

#GivingTuesdayCLT, Charlotte’s local response to the global #GivingTuesday movement, begins today!  In just four years this celebration of CLT philanthropy has influenced nearly $20M in gifts to Charlotte nonprofits and inspired more than 11,000 new donors.  #GivingTuesdayCLT was the largest global community-wide campaign in 2016, and we are ready to lead the charge again this year - with your help. 

With over 150 countries around the world celebrating this global day of giving, there is no way to ignore all the GOOD going on, and why would you? After all it is YOU - yes you, you #EverydayPhilanthropist who is reading this blog- it’s YOU who can make a difference this #GivingTuesdayCLT.
