Giving Tuesday takes place the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving and is a day to give back to the community following the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
If you would like to donate to a local Bay Area nonprofit or initiative this Giving Tuesday, NBC Bay Area has put together a list of local non-profits that are running special campaigns for this year’s Giving Tuesday:
Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area
The Comcast NBCUniversal Bay Area family is partnering with Make-A-Wish to help Bay Area children with critical illnesses. Prior to the pandemic, more than 80% of wishes involved air travel. Now that kids can once again go on travel wishes, Make-A-Wish has a rapidly increasing need for airline miles. You can help wish kids go the extra mile with your donation of frequent flier miles. Once donated, your miles never expire and will send wish children and their families on unforgettable experiences. Your donation of airline miles today ensures that Make-A-Wish will be able to book flights now and in the future. Click here to donate and learn more about Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area.

The Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley set a goal to raise $10,000 by the end of Giving Tuesday to support one latinx in technology scholarship recipient with a scholarship, professional development and internship opportunities. Click here to donate and learn more about more ways to help.
AACI Holiday Wish Drive
AACI is collecting gift cards and funds through Dec. 15, 2022, to provide gift cards to children of its most under-served clients, including children of domestic violence survivors and refugees. Every $25 will provide a child with a gift card to buy the gift of their choice this holiday season. Click here to donate and learn more about AACI's Holiday Wish Drive.
Family Giving Tree Holiday Wish Drive
This Giving Tuesday, FGT will be collecting donations to help provide much needed items to children, families, and seniors facing economic hardships in the Bay Area. Anyone can easily “grant” a specific wish by donating a requested item. If you would like to help, purchase any of FGT’s “Most Needed Gifts” and drop them off at 606 Valley Way, Milpitas, or drop them off at any of the drive leader locations throughout the Bay Area.
