The annual international day of charitable giving was created in 2012 with the goal of connecting individuals, communities and organizations around the world in a common purpose - to celebrate and encourage giving.

In 2017, an estimated $300 million was donated on Giving Tuesday alone.

Nonprofit groups like CaringBridge have used the day to kick off an annual year-end campaign that hopes to raise $1.5 million.

A release states the Richard M. Schulze Foundation, started by Best Buy founder Richard Schulze, will provide a matching grant if CaringBridge can raise $100,000 from existing or new donors Tuesday.

In addition to monetary donations, charities are also accepting donations of time and other means of support.
