Giving Tuesday 2022

Giving Tuesday, 2022

Giving Tuesday is on November 29th - Join the global generosity movement and celebrate all acts of giving! 

The holiday season is upon us and the spirit of giving is in the air. November 29th is the 9th annual Giving Tuesday.

Giving Tuesday is the world’s largest generosity movement. Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a stranger, or donating to an organization, every act of generosity counts, and everyone has something to give.

Created in 2012 as a simple idea, Giving Tuesday is a day that encourages people to do good. The idea caught on and has grown around the world, inspiring hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. 

This year, consider making a donation to Project Watershed. You can choose to donate to one of the four areas of our work (listed below under Donation Streams) or donate to our general fund, in which case we will use the money where it is needed the most. 

We know a financial donation is not feasible to everyone, in which case consider donating your time. We currently have various volunteer opportunities to sign up for.

Thanks for your support!
