What Is #GivingTuesday?

 

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving.  Everyone, anywhere, can participate!  Join the River Park during this 24-hour day of giving that will take place from midnight to midnight the Tuesday after Thanksgiving on November 28, 2017. 

 

What Is The Impact Of #GivingTuesday On The River Park?

 

The purpose of this giving challenge is to increase public awareness about our local environment, the San Diego River and to help raise funds and expand our online giving for the benefit of the San Diego River Science Field Station.

 

How Successful Was #GivingTuesday Last Year For The River Park?

 

Last, year the River Park raised $12,200 from 75 donors in   24-hours.  Think about how much more money we can raise for the San Diego River Science Field Station if we could simply get the word out more!  The average donation we received was $162!  Help us expand our reach and introduce the River Park to first-time donors!

 

How Can Companies Participate?

  • Make a “jump-start” donation or add to our gift-match pledge to inspire others to give.

  • Announce the River Park’s fundraiser on Tuesday, November 28th electronically to your company directory.

#GivingTuesday started by a group of philanthropically minded people in New York City in 2012.  Now it has grown to include 65 countries.  It is a day for everyone, everywhere, to GIVE and know they are helping the River Park build the San Diego River Science Field Station.
