What is Guelph Gives?

You've hear of Black Friday and Cyber Monday - days that are great for the economy and getting a good deal - well now we have Giving Tuesday a day that is great for the community. This day is a platform for local businesses and not-for-profit organizations to kick-off the giving season and celebrate all forms of giving as we work together to build a better community for all! We are harnessing the power of social media so please follow us.
