Over the last seven years, #GivingTuesday has gained momentum. Celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving. It is a movement that promotes giving either by donating money, volunteering, or offering expertise and information as an act of kindness. Social media and other platforms drive #GivingTuesday and help bring many people and partners together such as nonprofits, organizations, businesses and individuals.
The World Future Forum organization, Future Institute, has provided multiple ways you can be part of #GivingTuesday. You can volunteer as a mentor for a college student, give an internship or job opportunity, or sponsor a student with a scholarship. But why help Future Institute? The students that Future Institute serves are less likely to attend college and more likely to dropout within their first year of college. These students belong to the following demographics.
