Churches Give


Churches are doing incredible work in their local communities!

On GivingTuesday, churches are encouraged to share some of their community impact with the hashtag #churchesgive and consider fundraising for a special project the church is supporting that provides a significant community benefit.

It could be something your church runs, like a day camp, community garden or a drop-in youth program. However your church serves your community, highlight it and consider a special donation on GivingTuesday to support your church-run initiatives.

Outside space – parks, playgrounds, parking, recreation.
Direct spending – on operations, capital projects etc.
Education – nursery, day care, schools.
