Giving Tuesday: How to support Austin communities in need

Tuesday, November 29 is Giving Tuesday, a global day of generosity and giving back to our local communities after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. 

I Live Here I Give Here is the official Central Texas leader for Giving Tuesday. 

Giving Tuesday raised $900 million for thousands of organizations in 2021 alone. 

There are several ways to participate and over 700 organizations to support. Amplify ATX makes it easy to find a cause you care about.

You can donate your money or time, or buy a giving e-card for someone else to make a donation to a cause of their choice.

Good Work Austin is partnering with local businesses to benefit I Live Here I Give Here. Good Work Austin supports local businesses by providing resources for a quality, diverse workplace, and creating opportunities for new businesses in the area.
