What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a special day of generosity when people around the globe come together to raise awareness and support non-profit organizations and causes.

When is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is observed annually on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This year, Giving Tuesday is on December 1, 2020. 

How will my Giving Tuesday donation be matched?

Act now to double your impact, dollar-for-dollar. All gifts given—up to $85,000—will be doubled through 11:59PM EST 12/1. Gifts received after the match has been met will not be matched, but will be used where needed most. 

How your Giving Tuesday donation helps

Your Giving Tuesday donation supports a powerful movement of more than 41,000 doctors, nurses, logistical staff, and other experts doing whatever it takes to provide lifesaving medical and mental health care to those most in need every single day. 

In more than 70 countries, we are delivering emergency aid to those caught in crisis. In the midst of an armed conflict, an epidemic, a natural disaster, or a lack of urgently needed health care, MSF is there.

The coronavirus pandemic has impacted the entire world in 2020. As this unprecedented crisis continues to unfold, MSF teams have expanded and opened projects everywhere we operate. Our response to this crisis has included care for patients, health education, mental health support, and training for vital infection prevention and control measures in health facilities around the world.

As the pandemic rages on, so shall our life-saving work. That’s why we're proud to participate in #GivingTuesday. 

This will be an especially meaningful day for all of us at MSF. It’s a chance to step forward and show our health care workers that we support them. And it’s a chance to make sure we have the resources we need—everything from personal protective equipment to testing supplies—for the long road ahead.

Medical aid where it’s needed most

MSF goes wherever we’re needed most. Our teams are providing medical and mental health care in active war zones such as Yemen, where civilians are caught in the crossfire. We’re also working in South Sudan to vaccinate young children against a measles outbreak in the wake of severe flooding. Our response to the worldwide refugee crisis includes innovative response teams providing care along migratory routes through Mexico, as well as providing care to more than one million Rohingya refugees in Bangladeshi refugee camps. 

Doctors Without Borders teams are often on the ground when unexpected crises develop: while combating a measles epidemic we may notice that many children in the region are also suffering from severe malnutrition

It’s sustaining support from monthly donors—our Field Partners—who provide the reliable resources we need to pivot quickly. Field Partners make it possible for us to send our teams the supplies they need to address an emerging crisis before further death or suffering occurs.
