Counting Down to the World’s Biggest Day of Generosity

Oct 05, 2021 - GivingTuesday 2021 is coming up on November 30! In collaboration with thousands of communities worldwide, the Great Hearts Community is preparing to be part of the movement to unleash generosity.


GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Giving Tuesday is celebrated in the US on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to encourage acts of generosity during the holidays and on every Tuesday.


Great Hearts is thrilled to again be a part of this global day of giving. We are dedicating a special Great Hearts Award to celebrate. Twenty nonprofit groups will be selected by our online community and the public to receive grants on GivingTuesday. The 20 groups will be selected through a nominating process: the groups that receive the most nominations between today and November 8th will be eligible to receive grants on November 30th.


How it works:


  • Between October 7 and November 8, Great Hearts is accepting nominations for nonprofits to receive grants as part of our #GivingTuesday Award.
  • All US-based 501(C)3 public nonprofits that are in good standing are eligible to be considered.
  • Nominations may be submitted by Great Hearts Community followers and the public.
  • The groups that receive the most nominations will be selected for the Great Hearts #GivingTuesday Award.
  • On November 30, Great Hearts Community followers and the public will vote to award grants during the Great Hearts Award event. Each vote turns into a $3 grant for the nonprofit selected.
  • Each nonprofit may receive up to $1,000 in grants based on the votes received.
  • Great Hearts grants will be distributed in December 2021.


Nominate a cause you support. Rally friends and supporters to give their nominations as well. Together, we'll contribute to overwhelming the world with good on November 30th.
