Last year, a record $2.7 billion was donated here in the U.S. alone. But even if you’re on a tight budget, there are still ways of giving back.

And there are a ton of ways to give back right here in our community. SHARE Charlotte powers #GivingTuesdayCLT, which has influenced more than $36 million in value given to Charlotte nonprofits and inspired over 31,000 new donors.
