What is #GivingTuesday?

Berkeley Community Scholars is joining the Global #GivingTuesday Movement to celebrate those who give so much to our organization and make the scholarships, mentoring, and staff support we provide to our scholars possible.

#GivingTuesday, taking place December 3rd, is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage giving and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Every year, on GivingTuesday, millions of people across the globe mobilize to show up, give back, and change their communities. The goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day, and touches every person on the planet.

At BCS, we’re working to bridge the opportunity divide for Berkeley youth from lower-income families by providing scholarships, connections and other support instrumental to success in college and beyond. To sustain this mission, we need your help. This is why we’re raising awareness and funds for our programs this #GivingTuesday.
