#GivingTuesday is December 3, 2019, and runs for 24 hours, beginning at midnight local time! Get ready and get inspired for the annual global celebration that allows EVERYONE to invest in their values!

At Nutmeg Spay/Neuter Clinic, #GivingTuesday will launch our 2019 end-of-year giving campaign with a fundraising goal of $25,000 and a mission to end pet homelessness!  End-of-year giving is a wonderful way to kick off the holiday giving season and inspires people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to charity and causes they support.  Nonprofit organizations, like Nutmeg Spay/Neuter Clinic, wouldn’t exist without donations and support from the public.

Giving Tuesday isn’t just about fundraising – it’s about communities coming together giving their time, skills, expertise, and resources to a cause they feel passionate about.  In an increasingly divided world, #GivingTuesday represents a new global tradition based on joy, hope, and inspiration. 

Every act of generosity counts – and each means even more when we all give together!  Everyone has something to offer – you can give time or expertise, monetary donations large or small, or even a simple act of kindness.
