It is never too early to plan your giving year. We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now we have #GivingTuesday™, the giving season’s opening day. On Tuesday December 3, 2013 charities, families, businesses and individuals are coming together to transform the way people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. The idea for the campaign sprung from Henry Timms, deputy executive director of the Jewish community center 92nd Street Y, and Kathy Calvin, CEO of the United Nations Foundation. New York’s 92nd Street Y has been the catalyst and incubator for #GivingTuesday, bringing the expertise of 139 years of community-management to the project, and providing #GivingTuesday a home. Henry Timms has also been instrumental in producing the annual Social Good Summit, in partnership with Mashable and the UN Foundation, which has opened up the UN Week conversation to over 120,000 across the world. Earlier in his career, Henry oversaw corporate strategy for Arts & Business, one of HRH The Prince of Wales’ charities, and helped to launch the Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts.

She offers examples of innovative givers, social entrepreneurs, celebrities, government officials, nonprofit professionals, volunteers and social media networkers who also have a positive impact on society.
Analyzing the major areas for giving, she reviews religious philanthropy, education K-12, higher education, science and health, arts, culture and humanities, sports, multipurpose umbrella organizations, awards and international aid.

#TChat Radio is all new on Tuesday, April 23, 2013, at 7:30 pm ET (4:30 pm PT).
In the U.S. there are over 1.5 million nonprofit organizations that compete for charitable dollars. The fact is it's become more difficult today to attract donations in our social media-savvy society, despite spending over $7.6 billion annually on marketing.
What to do? Well, according to the 2012 Nonprofit Social Networking Report, nonprofits find great value in their fast-growing social networks. This makes sense since many of us utilize social networks to communicate and collaborate in a variety of personal and professional ways, including aligning with companies' corporate social responsibility initiatives. We live in a society today where social giving, impact investing and paying it forward are indicative of a different way of thinking about philanthropy, and there are new services and platforms that allow nonprofits, consumers and small businesses to benefit greatly in their giving. This week’s #TChat Radio and Twitter #TChat will discuss what it means to put social giving in this new nonprofit world of work. #TChat co-creators and hosts, Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman welcome this week's guests Marion Mariathasan, CEO of SoRewarding.com, a cause-focused social network that integrates giving into your daily activities, and Jure Klepic, a prolific speaker, writer, marketing and social media innovator who specializes in marketing strategy and social media innovation for consumer business.
This will be a great "world of work" show, so we hope to see you here!
