Crowdfunding is a form of peer-to-peer (P2P) fundraising. If you have ever participated in an event like Relay for Life where individual fundraising is combined with team fundraising, you have participated in a crowdfunding event. What if your company could apply the concept of crowdfunding to its 2020 employee giving program for #GivingTuesday Now on May 5, the regular #GivingTuesday on December 1, or another holiday giving campaign?
America’s Charities inspires employees and organizations to support causes they care about. We do this to bring more resources to the nonprofits that are changing our world.
GivingTuesday was established as a national day of giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. GivingTuesday is a celebration of philanthropy and volunteerism where people give whatever they are able to give. GivingTuesday is a day where citizens work together to share commitments, rally for favorite causes, build a stronger community, and think about other people.
It is fitting and proper on GivingTuesday and every day to recognize the tremendous impact of philanthropy, volunteerism and community service in Calvert County, Maryland.
It is proclaimed by the Calvert Board of County Commissioners that December 1, 2020, be known as GivingTuesday in Calvert County, Maryland. And it is further proclaimed that all segments of the community, in partnership with the Arc of Southern Maryland, are urged to celebrate their commitment by increasing the capacity to care about one another and the community.
