GivingTuesday was created by Henry Timms and Asha Curan in 2012 at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact—a cultural center in New York City that has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back since 1874. GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. With a mission to build a more just and generous world, the movement is fueled by effective partnerships, contemporary collaborations, powerful business sponsors, and strong social media engagement.
Around the world, people from 98 countries participated in #GivingTuesday in 2016. In 2017, Global leaders of 50 countries were championing the movement. And by 2019, global leaders from 10 African countries were approved to officially join the movement. To date, the GivingTuesday movement is now the most effective nonprofit model in the world. In, 2019, GivingTuesdayGhana hosted its first major activities in partnership with 6 organizations in Ghana. We invite you to get involved to help Ghana’s charitable organizations succeed.
GivingTuesdayGhana is connected to diverse groups of individuals, communities, and organizations, in both Liberia andn the diaspora, working towards one common purpose: to create effective partnerships among Ghana NGOs, clubs, churches, schools, and businesses. We believe an organized approach to creating impact is necessary for encouraging giving and volunteering. On November 27th, 2018, GivingTuesdayGhana hosted a major event in Ghana. The event highlighted and promoted the vital work being done by NGOs, schools, and individuals across Ghana; while encouraging others to get involved.
A number of organizations and individuals are joining the movement in Ghana through this portal, stating how they plan to partner, give, or celebrate. You can do the same; at no cost.
