Giving Tuesday

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

We invited you to attend a #GivingTuesday Sip, Supper, & Starfish event at a participating city!

What is Giving Tuesday?

You know of the days Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Small Business Saturday that are retail promotions centered around Thanksgiving in the U.S. Giving Tuesday is part of this trend! Many nonprofits are participating in a movement to make the Tuesday after Thanksgiving a day to give back, after all that sale shopping.

How Is Starfish Involved?

Each year, people passionate about Starfish volunteer their time by hosting an event to help raise money for our scholars! In 2014, we had 16 volunteers in eight U.S. states host a total of 10 events for Giving Tuesday that raised $4,158.94 in a single day. In 2015, Starfish volunteers held seven events across the U.S. and raised $2,013.00!  We also gained many great friends and volunteers from these events!

How You Can Get Involved!

This year, we're hoping to grow our impact with Giving Tuesday by gaining new friends of Starfish, and raising even more funds! Help us reach this goal by attending an event! We also have an exciting incentive for you to bring your friends to the event: For every Sip, Supper, & Starfish attendee (up to 100 attendees), $10 will be donated to Starfish!

We also invite you to participate in Giving Tuesday online! The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will match all donations to Starfish that are made via Facebook on Giving Tuesday. Visit to make your donation!
