JFS Joins #GivingTuesday

Posted on November 26, 2014

Jewish Family Service is participating in #GivingTuesday on December 2, 2014.

#GivingTuesday inspires personal philanthropy and encourages bigger, better and smarter charitable giving during the holiday season.

Where did the idea come from? The retail industry has long benefited from seasonal shopping that symbolically kicks off with “Black Friday” – a day that has since inspired “Small Business Saturday” and “Cyber Monday.” #GivingTuesday, then, serves as a celebratory, fully connected day to kick off the giving season, when many make their holiday and end-of-year charitable gifts.

During this time of year, it is important to remember this is the season of giving, not only to your family and friends but also to those who need it most. #GivingTuesday is the day when everyone can be a philanthropist.
