Giving Tuesday partners increased by 19% in 2020 from the previous year, with many notable names – including one of our Patrons, well-known actress Claire King – and a considerable 678 media mentions were observed.
On the day in 2020, £14,000 was raised each minute to support good causes, with a total overall donation amount of £20.2 million – This figure increased by £6 million from the previous year. Throughout the day, Giving Tuesday was trending on Twitter, amassing 360 million impressions.
Daniel Fluskey, Giving Tuesday UK Campaign Lead at the Chartered Institute of Fundraising, says: “Giving Tuesday provides such a fantastic opportunity for every business, charity, individual, or any type of organization to celebrate generosity and encourage people to be involved in something charitable.
“This year, alongside the encouragement for people to give and support charities, Giving Tuesday will be celebrating our shared pride in the amazing generosity that we see all around us – showcasing all the different ways people support charities and communities as well as highlighting the difference that support makes.”
Sue Burton, founder of Remus Horse Sanctuary adds: “With the challenges that everyone has felt and continues to experience this year, Giving Tuesday is a great moment for us to come together to remember, share, and celebrate the causes we care about and the things we value.
“The generosity of our supporters never ceases to amaze me. Without them, our work would be impossible. I thank each and every one of them – however they are able to help us.”
