It’s That Giving and Receiving Time of Year, Even on LinkedIn


Giving and receiving, in some form, are daily occurrences. Giving season, which typically starts in November and goes to December, is a little different.

Giving season is especially important for 501(c)3 nonprofits. Some organizations only do one yearly fundraising appeal for #GivingTuesday.

What’s #GivingTuesday? It’s a global movement for generosity that started in 2012. It reminds individuals and organizations to do good and support their local community or organization through giving, and in 2021, it is on Tuesday, November 30.

If you have:

  • Received benefits from all of the blog articles I have written since February 2019, and they bring value to you;
  • Landed a job or a client through networking in our organization;
  • Participated in any of our free workshops;

I would be delighted if you would participate in the only fundraising campaign of the year for my nonprofit organization.

Your donation is tax-deductible, and you will get an immediate receipt from our 501(c)3. Every dollar adds up to make a difference so we can continue to create impact.

Read some of our success stories!

Since nonprofits have been hit with fundraising challenges for in-person events during the pandemic, see how you can give time or talent if you can’t give treasure. Some refer to this trio of words as work, or wisdom, or wealth.

Other than giving season, we all participate in daily giving and receiving occurrences with family, friends, co-workers, strangers, pets, and even to ourselves in the form of self-care.

Here are ten ways you can be a giver with your LinkedIn network.

  1. Share a post or an article with helpful training tips or links like this one for online learning
  2. Share a video with useful training tips
  3. Comment on a post for a job seeker who is seeking their next success story
  4. Comment on a post of someone hiring, so the notification goes out in your network
  5. Engage in informational interviews with job seekers
  6. Refer a client to someone
  7. Make an introduction for a job seeker or a client seeker
  8. Endorse people in their skills and endorsements section
  9. Give people a recommendation
  10. Make a matching gift through your company’s program

Thanks for being a giver.
