Join NSWM for #GivingTuesday on December 3, 2019

December 3, 2019

Make generosity part of your growth strategy. When you participate in #GivingTuesday, you’re participating in a global movement for generosity and inspiring others to join.

#GivingTuesday was originally created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

The Network for Social Work Management, a nonprofit that is dedicated to its mission to strengthen leadership in health and human services, will be participating in #GivingTuesday. Help us further enhance our mission by saving the date and making a contribution online on December 3, 2019 at https://socialworkmanager.org/donate/.
