Giving Tuesday Now
Giving Tuesday is a global event that usually happens after the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend. But in response to COVID-19 an additional date has been added to support the many organizations that help our communities.
The Clevest team supports many charities throughout the year, but right now we aren’t able to do our group office events that raise money while we’re having fun. Giving Tuesday is a way for us to come together and make a difference in our communities.
We wanted to support a local charity that has seen an increase in the need for their services due to the pandemic, and chose Battered Women Support Services. Once the mandated social isolation was implemented, this group quickly moved to make their crisis line available 24/7 without any government funding. It’s private donors who make it possible for thousands of women and their children to get help in these unprecedented times.
To help our donations make the greatest impact, Clevest CEO Thomas Ligocki offered to personally match all employee donations for this event. Our campaign was a great success and we’re all very proud to support this organization.
