Giving Tuesday is November 29th!


Founded in 2012, Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that takes place annually after Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s considered the launch of the giving season. This year Giving Tuesday is November 29, 2016.

This year, St. Vincent de Paul – Detroit has partnered with Weingartz, Christian Financial Credit Union and Catholic Funeral & Cemetery Services to help spread the word of our work helping our neighbors in need!  We thank these generous sponsors for their support!

How you can participate in Giving Tuesday:

  1. Donate!  All donations will be generously matched by Weingartz!
  2. Take photos of yourselves helping SVdP and post on social media.  For example, donate clothing at one of our 10 Thrift Store and Donation Centers and take a photo!   Ask your employer to allow you to wear jeans to work for a donation to SVDP or host a bake sale and take photos.  These photos are called “unselfies” the opposite of “selfies,” as you are doing “unselfish” work for SVdP! Take your picture, tag it #unselfie and #GivingTuesday.  Upload to your Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.   Don’t forget to add something to your posts to the effect of I’m proud to support @svdpdet on #GivingTuesday!  Help me help others & donate now at
  3. Follow us and our corporate sponsors on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and like, share and comment on our posts.  We need your help getting the word out about SVdP and Giving Tuesday!
Thank you to Weingartz for generously matching donations!
