FAQs


#MarylandGivesMore is a movement to make Maryland the Most Generous State in America on 12.1.15 aka #GivingTuesday. Convened by Maryland Nonprofits, #MarylandGivesMore is a day for all of us to give back. Whether you’re an everyday giver, a corporate giver, a foundation, or a small business, you can get involved, give to your favorite causes, activate your social network, and make Maryland the Most Generous State in America. Nationally, #GivingTuesday is a movement to add a national day of giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. December 1, 2015 marks the fourth national #GivingTuesday.

We want every nonprofit in Maryland to get involved in #MarylandGivesMore!
