Giving Tuesday – A Day of Giving Back

What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that happens each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

It’s a day when individuals, charities and businesses around the world join together to participate in activities that support local charities and non-profits.

This year, Giving Tuesday falls on December 1st! We invite you to join in  the #GivingTuesday movement and make a difference to someone who may be struggling, someone who may be alone and lonely, someone who may be struggling with mental illness or addiction or someone who is hungry and has no where to go.

How can You Participate?

You can join this charitable movement by making a donation to your favourite charity, volunteering your time, helping a neighbour, fundraising or spreading the word about Giving Tuesday with family and friends.

We invite you to donate to our #GivingTuesday campaign. A donation of just $15 can change a life and offer hope to a neighbour in need. All funds raised stay local to combat poverty and other social issues in Bruce and Grey Counties.

You may also donate by phone at 519-376-1560 or by mail at: United Way of Bruce Grey, 380 9th Street East, Owen Sound, ON N4K 1P1

Thank you so much for your support and for making a difference to your community.

What can Your Donation Make Possible?

You can improve lives locally by supporting your community through the United Way.

You can make a difference in the lives of individuals and families who are struggling with poverty and social exclusion. You will give hope to at risk children and youth, isolated seniors, individuals with special needs or experiencing mental health issues, victims of abuse and families struggling to make ends meet.

Your donation to the United Way will help fund programs and services offering life changing aid to over 50,000 vulnerable men, women, children and youth in Bruce-Grey. This aid comes in the form of urgent utility assistance, emergency food supplies, nutritious meals, fully stocked backpacks, financial advice, tutoring assistance, safe shelter and access to mental health programs.

Every dollar you invest in your community through the United Way stays in Bruce-Grey to be reinvested back into the community where it is needed the most. With your generous support, you make our work possible.

Together, we can restore hope and change lives, moving individuals and families out of poverty and social exclusion to build a strong, healthy and safe community for everyone.

Together, we are united in helping others. Join the Giving Tuesday movement today and help someone in need in Bruce-Grey.
