Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday, the annual day that encourages people support a good cause, takes place on 3 December with 3,200 businesses involved including PayPal and Salesforce.

eBay will donate 5p from every transaction on, and 10p when a customer purchases two or more items, to the Prince’s Trust throughout the day for eBay’s own Give Day.

Paypal will be matching funds through their PayPal Giving Fund, up to a total of £150,000 on the day. RBS will also be matching their staff’s payroll giving contributions and promoting Giving Tuesday to over 1.5million of their MyReward Customers.

The Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) is leading Giving Tuesday in the UK. CAF’s Gráinne Mathews is hoping this year’s campaign is just as successful as previous editions. “Last year celebrities including Sir Richard Branson, Cara Delevingne and Dua Lipa all got behind the campaign. £7.8 million was raised in the UK on the day, and that’s just donations collected online,” comments Mathews.
