What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a global day of generosity that will take place on December 1. At a time when we are all experiencing the COVID-19 pandemic, generosity is what brings together people of all walks of life. You can show your generosity in a variety of ways during Giving Tuesday—whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes, every act of generosity counts.

Giving Tuesday 2020 at VIP

The pandemic has contributed to a 25% unemployment rate in the Bronx compared to about 6 percent this time last year. In response, VIP’s theme for Giving Tuesday is:

Preparing Clients for Employment in a COVID and post-COVID World.

Helping to get people back to work is a cause we can all feel and get behind. Work gives us more than a paycheck. It gives us meaning and a purpose.

On December 1, you can support this important cause, contribute to other programs within VIP, or simply make unrestricted contributions wherever the need is greatest.

Whatever you’re able to do or give will play a necessary role in VIP’s mission to improve the health and well-being of the Bronx and beyond by providing:

  • Health and Wellness for all ages
  • Addiction Services
  • Housing and Shelter
  • Job Readiness

Look for more announcements about Giving Tuesday over the next few weeks. Remember to mark your calendars and share the hashtag #GivingTuesdayVIP on social media.
