Giving Tuesday: On December first, donate to a fund hosted by the FGM





As part of Giving Tuesday, the international day of giving that takes place on Tuesday, December 1st, I would like to thank each one of you – the FGM fund creators, the community partners, all our dedicated volunteers – for your personal contribution to the well-being of Greater Montréal and its residents.
 
I encourage you to maintain your generosity by taking part in Giving Tuesday and donating to a cause or a fund hosted by the Foundation of Greater Montréal. Every donation counts, no matter how small. You only need to give from the heart and give as you can. When many people join forces, great things can be achieved – we have seen it happen! 
 
What about #GivingTuesday 
Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday  …now GivingTuesday is coming to Canada on December 1, 2015.
 
It is a new Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Cyber Monday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others.


My sincere thanks and best wishes.
 
Yvan Gauthier
 
President and CEO
Foundation of Greater Montréal
