The official giving season kicks off with Giving Tuesday. Entering its sixth year, Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. It was created in response to the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year we want to celebrate by highlighting some of InnerWill’s amazing nonprofit partners and helping them reach their Giving Tuesday fundraising goals.
We are grateful for the hard work of these partners, who have engaged with us to develop better people, braver leaders, and a wiser world through the practice of Values Based Leadership. As they develop more leaders, they also grow their ability to fulfill their missions and contribute significantly to the communities they serve. We are continually inspired and humbled by the commitment of these nonprofit teams. They choose to do the hard work of leading by example. And they expand their capacity to do good—no matter the setting.
You can make a difference this Giving Tuesday. We hope you’ll join us as we support today’s nonprofit leaders who are building a better tomorrow.
