What is GivingTuesday?
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Created in 2012, GivingTuesday was originally a simple idea to encourage people to do good. Now it’s an annual international movement that inspires millions of people to give to causes and organizations on Tuesday directly after American Thanksgiving.
At a time when we’re all experiencing the ripple effects of the pandemic, generosity toward our neighbors is more important than ever. GivingTuesday offers the opportunity to give to the communities and causes we care about in safe ways, providing a sense of social connection in these hard times.
Why give to your Library?
The Trenton Free Public Library has been a vital part of the City of Trenton since 1750, providing our community with free access to books, movies, technology, programs and other services. Since the pandemic, the Library has continued offering learning and entertainment opportunities by developing more online resources, providing curbside pickup and hosting online events. Starting September 2021, we resumed hosting events at the Library. We are currently developing new programs to assist our patrons in finding jobs and improving literacy skills. In addition to our efforts, your generous donations can bring even more positive changes at the Library that everyone in the community can then enjoy.
Support the Library on GivingTuesday
This year, GivingTuesday is Tuesday, November 30th. Everyone is encouraged to embrace their generosity and to give, collaborate, and do good, especially in their own community.
If you want to help the Trenton Free Public Library continue our mission of offering free access to great programs and services, transforming lives, and building strong communities in Trenton, we hope that we can count on your support on Giving Tuesday!
