We are proud to welcome Jason Goudy and Renée Loignon to the Giving Tuesday leadership team in Quebec.
Jason has worked with many charities in Quebec over the years, including LeaderImpact, helping people develop their leadership from a holistic perspective. He is excited to help share stories of generosity and impact from the belle province and to inspire others to do the same. He believes that when communities, charities, businesses and individuals come together around the giving of themselves, this builds greater unity, serves those in need and ultimately transforms lives.
Renée worked for more than 12 years at Investissement Québec before turning to philanthropic management. She has led foundations and nonprofits whose causes touch almost all spheres of philanthropy. She sits on the boards of directors of charitable organizations where she can live out her passion for event planning and fundraising. She currently holds a freelance managerial position with the Association of Fundraising Professionals Quebec Chapter (AFP Québec) and is dedicated to fostering a world of generosity and caring through best practices in fundraising.
GivingTuesday is a global day of giving. Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday … now we celebrate GivingTuesday, December 1st, 2020.
It is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.
GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners – nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals – to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness. Across Canada and around the world, GivingTuesday unites communities by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
