#GivingTuesday is Dec. 3

Tuesday, Dec. 3 is #GivingTuesday, which is designed to put the spotlight on charitable giving this time of year. The day encourages people to share as much as shop this holiday season.

The Arkansas Nonprofit Alliance (ANA), which represents over 360 nonprofit organizations in the state, is promoting this nationwide movement. Promoting #GivingTuesday is one way the organization hopes to strengthen philanthropy in Arkansas.

“Giving to a charity you care about is a powerful and emotionally fulfilling way to celebrate the holiday season,” said Stephanie Meincke, president and CEO of ANA. “We hope everyone will think about making #GivingTuesday a part of their holiday tradition. It’s a great way to teach children the importance of giving back and what a perfect way to celebrate the season.”

Meincke says Arkansas ranks seventh in charitable giving nationwide, and hopes to see that number grow.
