Giving Tuesday

WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?Giving Tuesday - Dec 3 - Graphic

#GivingTuesday has become a global movement of giving back and encouraging philanthropy. It began in 2012 as a charitable response to the consumerism of the post-Thanksgiving season in Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year, #GivingTuesday is on December 3! Since 2012, more than $1 billion has been raised on #GivingTuesday alone to support charitable causes. 


During this season of giving thanks, #GivingTuesday is an opportunity to help those who are less fortunate. This annual day of giving is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others – just like the CFC! 

Let’s show the country the generosity of the federal community by making #GivingTuesday the biggest one-day pledge total during the entire campaign.

  1. Make a CFC contribution to your favorite charities via payroll deduction, with a one-time gift, and pledge of volunteer hours through the online giving potal. 
  2. Get involved at your department, agency, or office Spirit Week festivities and activites - whether it's an event, the scavenger hunt, or simply sharing with colleagues about causes important to you!
  3. Post the How to Pledge Online Card near your desk to encourage others in your office to make their CFC pledge too.
  4. Follow the CFC hashtag #ShowSomeLoveCFC on official social media channels to see others' posts about giving back.
  5. Together, our collective efforts and generosity can help make #GivingTuesday the highest pledging day in CFC history!
