We give thanks on Thanksgiving. We hunt for deals in stores on Black Friday.
We browse the web on Cyber Monday. Now, we have a day dedicated to giving back: Giving Tuesday.

Each year, on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, charities, families,
businesses, community groups, and students around the world come together to celebrate generosity. #GivingTuesday creates worldwide opportunity for a meaningful
collaboration of giving. It makes a difference across the globe!

The #GivingTuesday movement first began in 2012 at New York's 92nd Street Y, in partnership with the United Nations Foundation. In 2015, Lubbock nonprofit, Alstöm Angels, in partnership with the Community Foundation of West Texas, brought #GivingTuesday movement to the campaign. In 2016, the Foundation took on the campaign as a community initiative.
In 2020, the name was changed to #GivingTuesdayWTX as the campaign
benefits Lubbock and 14 surrounding counties.

The Foundation's goal is encouraging local giving. As our logo states, we want dollars raised in
West Texas to stay in West Texas! This campaign has a heart for Lubbock and our
surrounding communities.

Since #GivingTuesdayWTX's inception, more than $3.2 Million has been raised, benefiting more than 150 local nonprofits in Lubbock, Levelland, Plainview, Post, Slaton, and the South Plains.

Save the Date: Giving Tuesday will be on December 3, 2024!
