How is Giving Tuesday different for NAM in 2021 than in previous years?
In 2020, you, our NAM supporters, joined in this global day of giving at a higher number than previous years, along with the rest of the world: Giving Tuesday 2020 saw an increase of 29% in donations worldwide. NAM saw a 26% increase in donations on Giving Tuesday 2020 - a record breaking amount of giving to NAM in a single day.
This year at NAM, we also saw an increase in the need for our services from our neighbors. The trend set by the pandemic in 2020 has continued into this year, as many struggle to recover from the economic impacts of this worldwide crisis. From October 2020 - December 2021, 136,000 clients sought and received services from Northwest Assistance Ministries - a number we have never seen before.
