Delta Donates In Celebration Of #GivingTuesday
In celebration of #GivingTuesday, Delta is donating $1.5 million to select nonprofit organizations who align with Delta’s focus on advancing education, expanding global health and wellness, promoting arts and culture, saluting armed service members and veterans, supporting global diversity and sustaining the environment.
The contribution is part of Delta’s commitment to donate 1 percent of its net income from the previous year to key charitable organizations. Delta is projected to give $37 million to charitable organizations this year.
Among the organizations that were chosen are: Feeding America, Junior Achievement USA, The Nature Conservancy, UNCF (United Negro College Fund), USO and the YMCA.
Now in its fifth year, #GivingTuesday is a global movement to give back to others. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the charitable season.
