What about #GivingTuesday?
The charitable holiday is a global day of giving – either money or time – that takes place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Started in 2012, #GivingTuesday to date has encouraged people from more than 98 countries to donate more than $177 million to charity.
There are so many wonderful and impactful organizations in the world, so we encourage you to choose one that is close to your heart. If you need help deciding, here is one that means a lot to the profession – the AICPA Benevolent Fund.
What is it?
In 1933 during the Great Depression, the AICPA created the Benevolent Fund as a place for members to turn during times of financial difficulty. In cases of serious illness, an accident, or the death of the primary source of family income, the fund helps members meet daily living and medical expenses not covered by insurance. One-time emergency grants are also available to help with natural disasters and other unexpected events.
