Again this year, people around the world came together for another record-setting day of giving. With estimates coming in at over $500 million in the US alone, and growth at nearly 28% over 2018*, the impact of Giving Tuesday has been enormous. We’re proud to announce that our clients made an incredible impact on the overall contributions collected, and new records were set this year. 

Through the generous contributions of our clients, total Giving Tuesday contributions through CyberGrants increased 15% in 2019 over 2018. Thank you to our clients who really hit it out of the park on this busy and transformative day. Other key metrics, such as client participation (+19%), employee donations (+24%), company matches (+7%), and benefiting organizations (+28%) also saw increases.

Take a look at a few of CyberGrants biggest Giving Tuesday wins:

  • We processed over $7 million in employee giving, and $8 million in company matches in just one day!
  • Employee donations went up 24% compared to last year’s GivingTuesday.
  • The number of unique organizations that participated increased by 28%.
  • The number of unique donors that participated increased by 19%.

Thousands and thousands of smaller organizations benefited, as well.
