Creating a More Equitable New York: Organizations to Support on Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday 2020 by Capalino Social Impact team

This year, there is no better time to recognize the importance of generosity and the impact it has to bring people together and affect change. The COVID-19 pandemic has touched every facet of our lives, with many of us dealing with profound change, loss, and uncertainty. Our communities are facing unparalleled challenges in responding to the pandemic, which has exacerbated deep inequities in our country. Thankfully, the City’s social justice community has been working tirelessly to address these injustices and will be critical to the City’s rebuilding efforts going forward.

This year marks the 8th anniversary of Giving Tuesday, which will take place on Dec 1, 2020. Giving Tuesday began in 2012 and has grown into a movement to encourage participation in global day of giving as we enter the holiday season. It is a special opportunity for everyone to give a helping hand to nonprofits within their community. Many nonprofit boards and supporters pledge to match donations, maximizing your impact. In 2019, Giving Tuesday raised $511 million in donations in the US alone and $1.9 billion worldwide.

Capalino encourages our friends and partners to consider donating to the following social justice organizations who are working to achieve a fairer and more equitable city for all New Yorkers.

Below, we’ve curated a list of local organizations you might consider supporting today:
