Joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement!

Iskashitaa empowers refugees by creating opportunities to better integrate them with the larger Tucson community while gaining skills that serve them in America in Tucson/Arizona since 2003.

Iskashitaa Refugee Network has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.You can learn about us and donate at 

Occurring this year on November 29, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support. 

“Working with Iskashitaa was a priceless education for me. Very satisfying to see my own efforts have a positive impact in a very short time. Everyone was supportive and appreciative. In all, a very rewarding experience.”
— Craig, Community Service volunteer

“We have learned so much from Iskashitaa and they inspire us to give back daily”                                            — Hari Nepal, Bhutan

92Y − a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around its core values of community service and giving back − conceptualized #GivingTuesday as a new way of linking individuals and causes to strengthen communities and encourage giving. In 2015, the fourth year of the movement, #GivingTuesday brought together over 45,000 partners in 71 countries and helped raise nearly $117 Million online in the US alone. 

“We have been incredibly inspired by the generosity in time, efforts and ideas that have brought our concept for a worldwide movement into reality,” said Henry Timms, founder of #GivingTuesday and executive director of 92Y. “As we embark on our fifth year of #GivingTuesday, we are encouraged by the early response from partners eager to continue making an impact in this global conversation.”
