A Global Day of Giving


Some of our generous donors have stepped up for #GivingTuesday! If we reach our goal of $10,000 raised that day, we have donors who will MATCH the donations – giving us a total of $20,000 in donations for our important work!


What is #GivingTuesday | Our #GivingTuesday Goals



What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is the global day of giving, and it is always the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Unlike Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is intended to celebrate the true spirit of the holiday season by building support for charities who are working tirelessly to make this a better world.

In 2017, #GivingTuesday raised over $300,000,000 by 2,50,000 people in 150 countries.

On Tuesday, November 27, 2018, The Butterfly Project is joining this global day of giving for a third time. We hope you’ll help us to make it a success!

Help Us Reach Our Goals

Last year we set out to raise $7,500 and raised over $12,000, with 42% of our #GivingTuesday 2017 donors as first-time donors to The Butterfly Project.

This year we are doubling down. With your help we are planning to:

Raise $10,000 in just one day
Inspire 150 donations on November 27, with 75 gift coming from new donors.
Together we can make this a reality.


Your donations will allow us to:

  • Provide our curriculum and butterfly kits at reduced prices or free to underserved students. Each $180 donated brings The Butterfly Project into the hands of 36 more students, often from schools with little to no budget for engaging programming such as this.
  • Develop age-appropriate Holocaust curriculum and lesson plans that translate to real life lessons including Anti-Bullying.
  • Help us expand our comprehensive teacher training program to empower more K-12 educators to teach the difficult lessons of the Holocaust and make it relevant to problems in today’s society.
  • Share our powerful message with audiences around the globe through screenings of our documentary film Not the Last Butterfly
  • Get closer to our goal of 1.5 Million painted ceramic butterflies to memorialize every child who perished in the Holocaust.


Our work would not be possible without our generous supporters.

Every dollar will help us combat modern hate and bigotry through art and education. With your support we are empowering the next generation to take actions against injustice.

Please consider making a gift this #GivingTuesday and share this message with a friend who cares about our Jewish legacy.
