Giving Tuesday was started in 2012 by the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at the 92nd Street Y as a counterpoint to the out-of-control consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the biggest shopping days of the year.
Giving Tuesday has rapidly grown into a global movement. It’s about service to all people. That idea is very 92nd Street Y.
