Countdown to #GivingTuesday

Don't miss your moment to make a difference.

Support CJC's 2022 #GivingTuesday Campaign

#GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of giving to transform communities. If you donate towards CJC’s first #Giving Tuesday campaign, your gift will go towards youth initiatives, community justice initiatives, and initiatives that help individuals returning to the community to get back on their feet. 


Every #GivingTuesday gift will be matched by one of our generous community donors! For example, when you give $25, CJC receives $50!

Pssst…Don’t forget that  #GivingTuesday donations (up to the first $5k) will be matched 100%! Your donation could count double this year!

We're Making #GivingTuesday Social

We have fun events happening on our social media channels for #GivingTuesday. Don’t want to miss out? Make sure you follow us and check out the schedule of events at the bottom of this page!
