While the IPS runs fundraising all year, #GivingTuesday is a special one for us. #GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. 

It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

Mark this annual day of giving on your calendar this year to contribute to the IPS by midnight on December 3rd.
