Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. This year, SurveyMonkey Contribute, powered by Momentive, can help you donate more to your favorite nonprofits and charities by doubling your impact on November 30, 2021. For every survey you take through the SurveyMonkey Contribute program on Giving Tuesday your chosen charity will receive $1.
What is SurveyMonkey Contribute?
SurveyMonkey Contribute is a program that enables individuals to donate to participating charities by completing surveys as part of our Market Research Solutions. Contribute allows survey respondents to choose which charity on our platform gets a donation for every survey they take. Since the program began in 2011, we’ve donated more than $16 million to organizations around the globe and we have more to give! With your help, we can collectively make an impact on the causes we care most about.
You can be set up to give back in minutes:
2. Complete your profile and pick a charity from our website to receive funds.
3. Take a survey! And another! And another! Each survey earns $1 for your charity on Giving Tuesday. (Every other day it earns 50 cents, which is still pretty great.)
Here are six charities doing meaningful work in their community, thanks to you and your contributions:
Ali Forney Center – “No son of mine is gay.” Those were the last words that Wilson’s dad spoke to him before slamming the door in his face. Wilson came to the Ali Forney Center’s Drop-In Center, the largest community center helping LGBTQ homeless youth in the United States. He had an injury that became infected and required surgery. Our case manager took Wilson to the hospital and—with no one else to care for him—signed on as his emergency contact. Upon his release from the hospital, we placed him in our Emergency Housing Program. He then moved into Transitional Housing and started working towards his undergraduate degree. Five years later, Wilson graduated from college and is currently enrolled in law school. He just recently completed an internship abroad working with refugees in conflict-ridden countries.

Community Education Partnerships - Students facing homelessness and housing insecurity experience many challenges and obstacles along their educational path—difficulties getting to and from school, frequent school changes, a lack of books and school supplies, and few long-term relationships with educators and peers, to name a few. These often lead to poor school performance and gaps in their knowledge and skills. CEP provides academic tutors to help a student be successful in school. Take, for example, Eric and his tutor Maggie. Through hard work, focus, and the incredible tutoring and mentoring provided by Maggie, Eric is enjoying academic success and defying the too-low expectations placed upon housing insecure students.

Petfinder Foundation – Money donated to the Petfinder Foundation is used to prevent the euthanasia of adoptable pets by assisting animal shelters and rescue groups across North America. One grant allowed Penny, a senior cat with health problems, to be placed into a forever home by providing a year’s worth of medical care and medication for her at no cost to the adopter. Save the lives of pets with a survey.
Rocky Mountain Institute – RMI is increasing access to renewable electricity and helping communities use that power to strengthen their economies. Last year, RMI helped bring online Nigeria’s first rural commercial “undergrid minigrid”. This solar hybrid system is now providing electricity to 230 residential consumers, 48 commercial consumers, and 11 public consumers with a 99.9% reliability rate. Distributed electricity is fundamental in Sub-Saharan Africa, where it enables residents to own small businesses that add value to local products, like milling grain and processing coffee beans. Support RMI through surveys here.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital – At 5 weeks old, Imani was in hospice declining after a brain surgery for glioblastoma, her family devastated at the thought of burying their daughter. With the help of doctors at St. Jude, Imani started chemotherapy, received surgery to remove the tumor and is now growing bigger and stronger every day. St. Jude advances cures for catastrophic pediatric diseases and no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay. Support St. Jude through SurveyMonkey Contribute here.
UNICEF USA – UNICEF is working to get children around the world back to school safely during the pandemic. UNICEF’s big focus is ending the pandemic by equitably distributing COVID-19 vaccines to 180 countries in 2021, while continuing to respond to emergencies and providing humanitarian relief by advocating for the rights of every child. Support their work by taking surveys on their behalf.
