HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED WITH GIVING TUESDAY?

Giving Tuesday isn’t about making a grand gesture; it’s about finding a way to give that suits you. It doesn’t matter how much money, time – or enthusiasm – you’ve got, there’s always a way for you to get involved.

Seven ideas to get you started

  • Manage your giving

    Give £50 more to your favourite cause – on us

    For a limited time only – see how you can get £50 extra when you open a CAF Charity Account. With a CAF Charity Account, you put a little aside when you have it, and with online access make a donation whenever you want.
  • Make a donation

    Make a donation

    Use our search to find a charity close to your heart or maybe find a new favourite to support. You could even challenge a friend to see who can raise the most money for a good cause.
  • Donate toys to charity

    Find a charity near you

    Small gestures make a difference. Why not donate food to a local food bank, toys to a charity shop or even clothing and blankets to a homeless shelter.
  • Volunteer at an animal rescue

    Five reasons to volunteer

    What a fantastic feeling it is to make a difference. Volunteering is a great way to meet new friends, learn new skills – or simply share your own.

  • Group discussion

WHAT HAPPENS ON THE DAY?

Since we started running Giving Tuesday UK in 2014, our staff have made the most of the day, developing creative fundraising ideas and encouraging our customers to get involved.

  • Teams across CAF have volunteered at many different charities.
  • Our Communications team Sang for Syrians outside Westminster.
  • Members of our Philanthropy division ran a funfair to raise funds, while others supported clients with their Giving Tuesday events.
  • Our Product team visited The Giving Tree in Bluewater, where they each bought a present for an underprivileged child.
  • Finance and IT raised money through bottle raffles and a 'Guess the number of sweets in a jar' competition.
  • And last year, CAF Customer Services served an incredible 250 breakfast baps to bring in the bacon on Giving Tuesday.

These are just some of our stories. Find out how others are showing their support on the Giving Tuesday website.
