#GivingTuesdayNM — Join the Movement

It’s been a few years since #GivingTuesday has become a national holiday on December 1st that encourages people all across the U.S. to give to their favorite charity. Not only does it encourage giving, it promotes the importance of volunteerism and philanthropy in our communities and in our world.


And now, Albuquerque is joining the movement. Mayor Richard J. Berry has proclaimed December 1st as Giving Tuesday as a way of continuing to promote the importance of philanthropy in Albuquerque. Local nonprofits have taken it among themselves to band together to spread the word by promoting this great event, and @Pay is excited to join in on their efforts to impact New Mexico.

A few weeks back, @Pay was at the National Philanthropy Day Lives of Impact luncheon in Albuquerque, met by a great turnout. It was exciting to be able to feel the generosity right here in our very own city. And as we near the end of November, just over 80 organizations have joined and are participating in #GivingTuesdayNM 2015!

Why support this movement? The Center for Nonprofit Excellence put it best:

“We know that a community that is active in philanthropy and volunteerism provides the framework needed for a positive business environment. Businesses in Albuquerque that partner with nonprofits that improve healthcare, education, the environment, address social justice issues and homelessness help to positively impact the whole community. 

A vibrant city is critical to attracting business, jobs and growing the local economy. Donors, individuals and corporate partners who are informed about the benefits of philanthropy need to spread the word – and stand up and give. 

#GivingTuesdayNM provides that collaborative space and coordinated communication to impact change.”

So whether you’re a member of a nonprofit or you’re a member of our community and have an organization in mind that you’d like to support, take part in #GivingTuesdayNM (or #GivingTuesday, wherever your home may be) and spread the word! Join the movement to create change in our community.
