Humanity is about giving more than we are given.

On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, people from around the world will be coming together for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. California Humanities is pleased to join forces with over 30,000 organizations in 68 countries that are kicking off the holiday season by encouraging people to give back to the causes they love.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of others. We invite you to join us in the coming days to celebrate goodwill and the good work of California Humanities. Since 1975, California Humanities has worked with individuals and organizations such as libraries, media organizations, universities, museums, and cultural centers. Help us meet our mission to connect Californians to ideas and to one another in order to understand our shared heritage and diverse cultures, inspire civic participation, and help to shape a vibrant future for our state.

Here are a few ways you can join #GivingTuesday:

  • Give your support on December 1 by making an online donation. All donations made on December 1 will be matched, in part, by our online donation service, Network for Good.
