It’s Here: The 2015 Edition of #GivingTuesday!


Today is #GivingTuesday?

It’s a national movement to make today the philanthropic equivalent of Black Friday or Cyber Monday. On last year’s #GivingTuesday, tens of millions of dollars were raised for nearly 4,000 nonprofits. Those are great results that we hope to build on — and surpass over the next 15 hours.

Today we’ll use email, text, and social media to help make the case for supporting Susan G. Komen. Watch for our tweets and posts, and feel free to share. The more people we have promoting Komen KC through #GivingTuesday, the greater our collective voice and benefit will be.

Join the Conversation

We’d love for you to join us. This is your chance to fuel your own circles of influence and not only increase overall donor participation on the day itself, but throughout the month of December.
