#GivingTuesdayNM...Together We Can Do More.
In 2017, 242 nonprofits in 34 communities raised over $383,000 for their work!
What is #GivingTuesdayNM?
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and in conjunction with the widely recognized shopping days, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesdayNM is part of the global day of giving known as #GivingTuesday.
Since 2015, the Center for Nonprofit Excellence (CNPE) has coordinated the branded, local initiative in order to make it easy for donors, volunteers and other organizations to find New Mexico nonprofits running #GivingTuesday campaigns.
#GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities. It provides a platform for encouraging the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the unique and collective power of partners — nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals — to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.

What can you give, and why do you give your time, money and heart?
Last year, the #UnSelfie campaign went viral internationally. We think it perfectly complements #GivingTuesdayNM because the spirit is rooted in selflessness. Use the template below to share on social media what you give and why.
1. Print this sign
2. Write what and why you give
3. Post a pic on social media of yourself, your dog, your family, your co-workers
4. Don't forget to include the #GivingTuesdayNM and #UNSelfie hashtags!
