#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity, set to take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. The day is designed to drive an influx of generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.
At a time when we are all experiencing the pandemic, generosity is what brings people of all races, faiths, and political views together across the globe. Generosity gives everyone power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value anyone can act on. It’s a day for everyone around the world to stand together and give back in all ways, no matter who or where we are.
On May 5, 2020, the American Osteopathic Foundation (AOF) is participating in #GivingTuesdayNow, by creating a personal and simple way for anyone to send cards of gratitude and support to the special people in their lives while also supporting the increasingly important work of the Foundation.
The AOF is resolute in continuing our mission during these times by providing scholarships to osteopathic medical students, supporting increased access to care in under-served communities, and funding international humanitarian outreach as well as innovative research that is changing the course of modern medicine. We do this good work with the help of so many. Together.
