#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season of giving. 

This year,  OC Funders members celebrated #GivingTuesday by sharing what philanthropy means to them, and why they give. 

Cox California: #GivingTuesday Philanthropy is more than a buzzword it’s a mission & an opportunity to use our time, talent & technology in ways that strengthen cities, businesses & future generations. #OCFRGives #TeamCox
OCFR Vice Chair Sarah Middleton: "I give because I’m head over heels for #socialimpact and #socialinnovation. That and because we’re surrounded by some absolutely incredible and game-changing #nonprofits." #GivingTuesday
OCFR member Shari Battle: "We have 2 hands,~one to help yourself~one to help others. @BankofAmerica improving communities =responsive growth #GivingTuesday "
Edwards Lifesciences: As part of Orange County Funders Roundtable, we're proud to give to give back to our communities, including our support of the children and families of Washington Elementary School. #GivingTuesday #OCFRgives
Sisters of St. Joseph: "Nonprofits in Orange County, across California, in the United States and around the world foster unity that is not uniformity and diversity that is not divisive. The Sisters of St. Joseph Healthcare Foundation believes in one human family whatever our differences may be. We encourage you to participate in #GivingTuesday, contributing to the nonprofit(s) that embrace and support our oneness. Together we foster unity."
