#GivingTuesday, A Global Day of Giving
Created by the team at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at the 92nd Street Y—a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back—#GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. A team of influencers and founding partners joined forces, collaborating across sectors, offering expertise and working tirelessly, to launch #GivingTuesday and have continued to shape, grow and strengthen the movement.
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
Join the Toucan Rescue Ranch for #GivingTuesday
The Toucan Rescue Ranch is 100% operated from donations by supporters. Due to the government not providing any funding, we reach out to our audience for donations for various expenses and projects. At TRR, we provide educational tours where guests are asked to donate for the experience. All money from this directly benefits our #papayaislife Fund which pays for animal diets, enclosures and enclosure improvements, animal care staffing, medical costs, and general overhead. We have various experiences available ranging at different donation suggestions.
The Toucan Rescue Ranch also utilizes crowdfunding to help with project specific expenses. Examples of this would be building a new soft-release enclosure or facility. We also have various programs such as a symbolic Adoption Program and opportunity for corporate sponsorship.
In the past few years, TRR has also applied for various grants for specific projects regarding research and growth.
