People gave an estimated $274 million to charitable causes online this Giving Tuesday, with more than 2 million digital donations processed — the largest outpouring ever for the event.
The numbers far exceed the $177 million raised last year on Giving Tuesday.
The numbers this year come from 37 websites. The 92nd Street Y, the group that launched the first national day of philanthropy in 2012 with the United Nations Foundation, collected the data.
There’s no central repository for Giving Tuesday donation totals.
