How did #GivingTuesday get started?
Created by the team at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact, this day of giving has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back – #GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.

When is #GivingTuesday Celebrated?
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy.
How will my support on #GivingTuesday be used?
Med Center Health Foundation supports many worthwhile non-profit initiatives, including Med Center Health’s Community Clinic and Dental Clinic, Guardian Angel Program, The Hospitality House, Cancer Treatment for Southern Kentucky, Health Sciences Simulation Lab, nursing and physician student scholarships, and health and wellness initiatives such as The Medical Center at Franklin’s Walking Trail Project and The Medical Center at Scottsville’s Cal Turner Rehab and Specialty Care courtyard renovation – just to mention a few! Each year in September the foundation’s #GivingTuesday initiative is chosen based on the greatest need at that given time.
