Giving Tuesday is right around the corner and everyone is looking for an edge to help them raise more money on December 1st. The effort will be worth it as Giving Tuesday will likely continue its tremendous growth.

One resource that can help you is this presentation, which I delivered today to a group of nonprofit alumni of the New Strategies Program, which is part of Georgetown University's Global Social Enterprise Initiative.
I based my presentation on three key articles on Giving Tuesday.
