#GivingTuesday is I Live Here I Give Here’s program to promote actions for good and monthly giving in the Austin metro area. Austin has been named one of the most economically segregated cities in the country while also being named one of America’s strongest economies.
Austin is currently ranked the 33rd most generous city in the US, compared to our neighbors Dallas at number 4, Houston at number 5, and San Antonio at number 25. We know we can do better! Let’s show the world how generous our community can be this #GivingTuesday.
#GivingTuesday takes place every year the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and commercial shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday and aims recenter public attention on generosity. A global campaign propelled by grassroots action, #GivingTuesday kicks off the giving season. I Live Here I Give Here officially joined the global #GivingTuesday movement in 2017 as the Central Texas #GivingTuesday Community Leader.
