Giving Tuesday
Tuesday, December 3, All Day

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.  We hope you’ll consider giving to RTPI in support of our Art, Conservation and Education programs!  For more information about Giving Tuesday, please visit www.givingtuesday.org.
