Giving Tuesday Now is May 5

Mobilizing the World Through Giving

We believe that generosity has the power to unite and heal communities in good times and bad. A global threat like COVID-19 touches every person on the planet, and it presents an opportunity to come together as a global community.

#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 – in addition to the regularly scheduled Dec 1, 2020 #GivingTuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

Let’s come together in Durham to create a wave of generosity, citizen engagement, action from business and philanthropy, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.


We can still show social connection and come together on behalf of our communities even while practicing physical distancing.

Discover more ideas for how to participate, and get daily ideas via text or email by signing up for their Daily Generosity alerts.

How are you giving back? Share on social media with hashtag #durhamchamber and #GivingTuesdayNow and inspire others to give together even when we’re apart.

“Durham community members always have demonstrated that they will support each other,” said Kim Shaw, Executive Director of The Triangle Nonprofit & Volunteer Leadership Center.
