Giving Tuesday 2023

Have you heard? It’s time to join the generosity movement!

Thanksgiving is fast approaching, which means Giving Tuesday is around the corner. If you haven’t taken advantage of your company’s corporate matching initiative, now is the time. And if your job doesn’t offer corporate matching, many nonprofits partner with corporations to double donors’ impact. Mark your calendars and set a reminder—November 28 is the day to support organizations that transform communities and the world.

If you are looking for a worthy and impactful organization for your donation dollars, Fíonta partners with a wide range of nonprofits serving diverse communities and needs.
