GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of radical generosity to transform communities and the world. It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Grassroots generosity and community action are powerful forces for good, especially in turbulent times. Even in times of economic uncertainty, we each have a deep reserve of generosity, which we can deploy in myriad ways to make a difference–your time, your kindness, your skills, your voice are all things you can give in addition to charitable donations. If you are unable to give financially at this time, consider signing up for our volunteer list, or send in your favorite Burning Coal story to firstname.lastname@example.org to inspire others to give.
A group of top donors have come together to create a series of matches. The first match is $500, which will be formally announced November 22nd. Once we meet our first match, the next match will be unveiled. This is our strategy to keep the giving spirit going throughout the week leading up to Giving Tuesday. Now is the best time to contribute because your contribution will be matched dollar-for-dollar, creating double the impact! You can help us reach our next match. Click here to donate today online. You can also donate over the phone at (919) 834-4001, or mail a check made out to Burning Coal Theatre to 224 Polk St., Raleigh, NC 27604 with Giving Tuesday in the memo line.
