Giving Tuesday

You know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but have you heard about #Giving Tuesday?

#Giving Tuesday proves that the holidays can be about both giving and giving back. It celebrates how Americans can do more with their wallets than just shop. 

Community Shares is using this day to celebrate giving and hopes to continue the conversation about ways to give more, give smarter, and put personal philanthropy back into the giving season.

Make a gift to of $25 or more to Community Shares on #Giving Tuesday and be entered to win one of two prizes: a $50 gift card to The Cheesecake Factory or a $25 gift card to Bed Bath & Beyond! Donations can be made by calling our office at 216-361-9920 or by donating online through Network for Good. Donations received for #GivingTuesday will be used toward general operating expenses of Community Shares. To learn more about the #GivingTuesday movement go to
