#GivingTuesday is a global event dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together to celebrate generosity and giving back. As part of this year’s #GivingTuesday initiative, individuals are being challenged to not only give, but to perform an act of Great Giving. Give smarter, give more creatively, and give in a way that will be most beneficial to you and the cause that you care about the most.
On #GivingTuesday, join us in celebrating the organizations that have helped to support the infertility community throughout the year.
RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association
RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association was established in 1974 and remains the only nationwide non-profit organization established to promote reproductive health and to ensure equal access to all family building options for men and women experiencing infertility or other reproductive disorders.

In addition, the Cade Foundation provides financial assistance to families pursuing infertility treatment or domestic adoption through their Family Building Grant – worth up to $10,000. This dual support approach distinguishes the foundation as the only organization of its kind in the nation. To date, over 40 families have been provided with grants and 31 babies have been born with the help of those grants.

The Pay it Forward Fertility Foundation (PIFFF) helps reduce the cost of infertility treatment by providing grants to eligible families. This grant will go to those without insurance to pay for fertility treatment, members of the United States Armed Forces who are being deployed, and cancer patients. Additionally, the Foundation seeks to educate couples about infertility.
The act of donation is part of a movement to make our world a better place. Donation does not always mean money – you can donate your time as well. Volunteering and raising awareness for your cause are just as valuable as donating funds. As givingtuesday.org mentions on their site, you can give thanks, money, food, or love; whether big or small, or simply just because. However you choose to give back, be sure to give responsibly and perform an act of great giving.
