A Global Day of Giving

We believe that when our nonprofits are strong, our communities are stronger. This is why #GIVINGTUESDAYHI was developed. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, a time when many focus on helping others.

How to Get Involved

This year, Giving Tuesday takes place on December 3, and is centered around the CHANGE movement that works to drive collective action around shared goals based on a common set of data. This movement aims to inspire us all to care for our community, island, and state by supporting a local nonprofit organization with a gift of time, talent, or treasure.

Change Framework

Together we can change our world

More than money, many nonprofits value your assistance. A helping hand that gets them through the tough projects and keeps them focused on their mission.

Volunteer your time at your favorite nonprofit and share a photo of you volunteering on social media using #CHANGEforHawaii. You’ll be entered to give a $1,000 grant to the charity of your choice in December and January.

Change Framework

Providing expertise through your special talents

CATCHAFIRE is a community of individuals seeking to support and strengthen the social good sector. We do this by matching professionals who want to donate their time and talent with nonprofits who need those skills.

Do you have a special skill set that may be able to push an organizations mission forward? Please take some time to look through the list of project needs for local organizations to see if your special skills could help them achieve their goals.

Change Framework

Donate to your favorite charities

For the first time, HCF and HONOLULU Magazine have partnered to create a single giving platform to make giving even easier this season. The Give Big Hawaii effort allows nonprofits to create their own pages and givers to search and easily donate to their favorite charities. The platform has launched for nonprofits and giving will start on Giving Tuesday and end on Dec. 8.
