In September 2022, the CIOF invited SOFII to present a webinar on our favourite Giving Tuesday ideas. This was added to the resources page of the Giving Tuesday UK website and features campaigns celebrated at IWITOT: The Americas 2022. 

Ryan Steele and Clay Buck both inspired us with two campaigns that could be adapted for Giving Tuesday at your own organisation. In this presentation we share their super insights with you and Meredith Niles, chair of the SOFII board, talks you through a wonderful Giving Tuesday campaign from her time at Marie Curie.
