The Atlantic Cape Foundation will join millions around the world by participating in the global generosity  GivingTuesday movement on December 1, 2020.  
Founded in 2012, GivingTuesday is “a day that encourages people to do good.” Whether participants give their time, a financial contribution, or a voice in the community, all contributions matter. Especially now, in today’s state of unrest and uncertainty, kindness, compassion, and support are needed most. Any act of generosity is welcome and appreciated. 
Alumni and friends of Atlantic Cape, along with the community, are invited to participate in this year's Day of Giving by making a donation to the Atlantic Cape Foundation. This year, the foundation hopes to raise $10,000, a figure that slightly surpasses the amount raised in 2019. All donations received will directly impact the students of Atlantic Cape as the Foundation annually awards scholarships and emergency funding to students in need.  
As a movement, GivingTuesday encourages participants to unite under the collective voice of generosity. Nestled between Thanksgiving and the winter holidays, the initiative incorporates the spirit of the giving season and provides individuals and organizations with a global platform to make a difference within their communities across the world and encourages the celebration of generosity.  
In 2019, a total of $1.97 billion was raised in the United States alone through online and offline activities including volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness.  
“GivingTuesday inspires people all around the world to embrace their power to drive progress around the causes they care about, not just on one day but throughout the year," said Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s CEO, and co-founder. "With country and community leaders, millions of organizations, and countless givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world."
