What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global movement focused on unleashing the power of radical generosity around the world. It originated in 2012 as a simple, yet powerful idea: a day dedicated to encouraging people to demonstrate generosity. It has since developed into a global movement inspiring people to regularly give to charitable causes, collaborate with one another to spread kindness, and celebrate generosity in all its forms.

Our #GivingTuesday campaign will run through the entire month of November, concluding on #GivingTuesday, which will take place this year on November 30 (the Tuesday after Thanksgiving).

HRF’s 2021 #GivingTuesday Campaign 


Throughout November, HRF will be highlighting the mission of Giving Tuesday and the power of the giving season, the ways HRF is continuing its fight against tyranny, and new ways our community will be able to contribute to our cause! 

HRF is raffling off TWO All-Access Passes (valued at $6,000) for the 2022 Oslo Freedom Forum (May 23-25) to one individual who makes a gift to HRF during the month of November as part of our #GivingTuesday campaign! Every dollar you give amounts to one entry, so the more you give, the better your chances are of winning. 


Here’s How it Works


To enter the raffle, all you need to do is make a donation to HRF anytime from now until the end of the day November 30. 

Remember, each dollar counts as one entry! Don’t miss out on this chance to win an all-access experience at the 2022 Oslo Freedom Forum! You can learn about previous Oslo Freedom Forums here

Donor-Advised Funds

Donor-advised funds, such as Vanguard, Schwab Charitable, and Fidelity Charitable, are becoming increasingly popular ways to give. Donor Advised Funds allow donors to make charitable contributions to organizations, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time. 

Amazon Smile

When you sign up for Amazon Smile, 0.5% of all your subsequent  Amazon purchases will automatically be donated to HRF! Visit smile.amazon.com and select the Human Rights Foundation as your charity of your choice. This is one of the simplest ways you can donate on an ongoing basis.

Corporate Gift Matching

Many US-based companies will match up to 100% of their employees’ charitable contributions, essentially doubling your impact. Check to see if your employer will match your donation to HRF here.

Legacy Gifts

Leaving HRF a gift in your will or giving us a percentage of your estate allows you to create a lasting legacy of protecting human rights.

Qualified Charitable Distributions

Qualified charitable distributions (QCDs), tax-free gifts made from a traditional IRA, are the fastest growing type of philanthropy. Donors who are 70+ and who have an IRA will avoid any taxes on QCD donations, while making a significant impact on HRF’s mission. Click here to learn more.
