What is GivingTuesday?

GivingTuesday is a worldwide movement that reimagines a world built upon shared humanity and generosity.  Their global network collaborates year-round to inspire generosity around the world, with a common mission to build a world where generosity is part of everyday life.  November 30, 2021 is a designated day for GivingTuesday.

GivingTuesday fits perfectly with National Foundation for Transplants mission of removing financial barriers that prevent or delay a patient from receiving a transplant.  We help level the field and make it possible for patients to receive a life-saving transplant, regardless of financial status.  Our tools and consultants make it possible for family and friends to raise funds for the National Foundation for Transplants in honor of a specific patient.
