Thanksgiving is ultimately a time to express gratitude. In the spirit of paying it forward this season, we have the perfect recipe to help you give back.
Some of the best ways to give back and show your appreciation are by participating in #GivingTuesday and fundraising all year round through NonprofitReady underwritten by the Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation.
In 2014 the Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation launched NonprofitReady with a simple mission: To support nonprofit professionals and organizations by providing access to free (yes, you read that right, free!) sector-specific learning so they have the knowledge and resources to create transformative impact in their communities.
And with many nonprofits committed to improving the lives of others, we want to ensure that the nonprofits themselves have the resources and training they need to deliver on their mission anytime at no cost.

NonprofitReady meets #GivingTuesday around the world
We love history: Tuesday, November 29 marks GivingTuesday, a movement that unleashes the power of radical generosity around the world. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple day encouraging people to do good. Organizations around the world engage in this day.
How can we help?
Through the NonprofitReady offerings, there is a curated playlist that provides a complete GivingTuesday guide from organizing tactics you can use to rally support for your movement on GivingTuesday, social media support, resource library, and more.
GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people worldwide to use their power of generosity to remain connected and support their communities. In this time of uncertainty, stress and even despair, one thing that gives us hope is the support people show for each other. We owe this to the sense of urgency and our desire to collaborate. All around the world, people are joining forces and leaning on each other, and this generosity tells us that we can achieve the better, more just world we all seek.
