A special series on the 5 Giving Tuesdays—a campaign launched by the Case Foundation to celebrate the gift of giving this holiday season. Each week we will feature stories and resources showcasing the different ways you can give back to you make a greater impact in your community.

This week we kicked off our 5 Giving Tuesdays campaign and celebrated the second annual #GivingTuesday—both initiatives promote the many ways you can give back this holiday season. Our focus this first week is on the gift of a donation and we’re featuring three ways you can get involved today!

Commit to Give: Join in on our celebration of giving by entering The 5 Giving Tuesdays sweepstakes and help us to award $100,000 in grants and prizes ($90,000 to nonprofits | $10,000 to individuals)! We invite you to commit to “Give the Gift of A Donation” and provide a contribution to your favorite nonprofit or one of the four other featured acts of giving.
New prizes are up for grabs each week! This week we’re giving away 10 gift card combination packs. Each pack includes a $100 Amazon Gift card to spend and a $100 Network for Good card to give to your favorite nonprofit so you can spread the cheer. Enter today!

Make a Donation: We’ve teamed up with CrowdRise, Network for Good, and SixDegrees.org to host an online page where donors can support their favorite nonprofit and learn about new ones. Check it out!

Be Benevolent: Want to give an impactful gift and choose exactly how it will help? Benevolent is the place. Benevolent.net posts requests from people with validated needs—a laptop for school, a suit for a job interview, or a bed in which to sleep—for donors looking to give to a specific individual with a specific need. Local nonprofit professionals who know each individual on the site validate them and their requests. You as the donor can choose a need and give what you can.

You can take it one step further with Benevolent Giving Cards! Benevolent Giving Cards let you give the gift of giving! Your gift already goes far contributing on Benevolent. Now, you can give your friends and relatives the chance to be benevolent themselves! Our passion for exploring the power of individual giving is core to our mission at the Foundation as we aim to encourage, empower, and incentivize giving online to transform how people give.
